Gousto

Founded in 2012, Gousto pioneered the recipe box offering in the UK. Conceived whilst working long hours in the finance industry, Founder and CEO Timo Boldt, identified a need for convenient, easy to cook, high quality meals at home, that reduced food waste. Timo realised that the optimal solution required a regular delivery service direct to people’s homes with all of the ingredients provided and measured out, with easy to follow recipe cards. At the age of 26 Timo quit his job to found Gousto. 

Initially funded from his own savings and then followed up with friends and family around, Gousto has since gone through multiple funding rounds, raising over £130m from leading investors including Perwyn Private Equity, Canaccord Genuity, Unilever Ventures, BGF, MMC Ventures and Joe Wicks – who in addition to being an investor and brand ambassador, also has his own Joe Wicks ‘Lean in 15’ range of recipes on the Gousto menu. 

Gousto has achieved rapid growth with sales increasing six-fold between 2016 and 2019. Gousto’s financial success has been recognised in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 ranking of Britain’s fastest-growing private companies in 2018, 2019 and 2020. In 2020 Gousto was also ranked 257 in the FTs list of Europe's 1,000 fastest growing Companies. 

Gousto’s differentiation to peers lies in its over 100 strong tech team and its focus on data and artificial intelligence, which power all its operations including its automated fulfilment centre Spalding, Lincolnshire and enable its market-leading customer proposition – the most recipe choice, at the lowest price, delivered in the shortest lead time. Its intelligent use of data has facilitated the creation of the first recipe box recommendation engine – ‘the Spotify for food’.
