We can only achieve our mission if we make customers’ lives easier, better and more natural. This means giving customers the most recipe choice and discovery of new cuisines.We offer the fastest turnaround time and delivery options, delivering incredibly fresh, seasonal, and high quality food.”
The company will use the money to fulfill its mission of reducing food waste and accelerate its efforts to create a good experience for its customers. “It’s really simple, but this way we please our customers, build a sustainable business, and do good in the world,” he added.
Gousto now employs approximately 200 people and has offices in Lincolnshire and London.
