In 2017, Pop Meals was the first Malaysian startup to be accepted to Y Combinator (Silicon Valley based accelerator with alumni including Stripe, Airbnb, Reddit and Dropbox).
To date, Pop Meals has raised over US$28m in funding from global VCs such as Rakuten Capital, Partech Partners, Y Combinator, White Star Capital, Woowa Brothers and private investments from the F&B veterans such as the former CEO of Nestlé Germany.
Currently operational in Malaysia and Thailand, customers can order chef-made meals to be delivered to office and homes using the website and mobile apps. The product offering constantly changes with 40+ new dishes monthly from a growing database of 2,000+ tested dishes starting at a price point of USD3.
By combining the entire value chain, Pop Meals controls all aspects of the customer experience from food product development to last mile delivery from “satellite” distribution kitchens.
