Food delivery firm Cookoo bags £250,000

London-based homemade meal delivery start-up set to expand network of chefs and range of meals

Cookoo, a London-based food delivery start-up launched less than seven months ago, has secured £250,000 in funding.

Founded by Oxford University graduates Joanne Thompson and Rachel Swidenbank, Cookoo delivers meals that are designed and cooked by a network of independent chefs and then delivered directly to homes or offices.

Currently delivering to Central London postcodes only, all meals are labeled with nutritional information, delivered chilled and ready to be cooked in the oven or microwave. Cookoo claims its excess food is donated to local homeless shelters.

The investment will help to increase brand awareness and enable the start-up business to expand its network of cooks and the range of meals available.

Swidenbank commented: “Our focus is on discovery and quality. We make it simpler to eat fresh, home-cooked, food, made by real people, from real ingredients.

“Our cooks each have their own unique style and expertise so Cookoo customers can experience new tastes and choose from affordable, ever-changing dishes that they will love.”
