Feedr believe that healthy, fresh and affordable meals should be available at all workplaces for all employees. As a data-driven, online marketplace working with London’s top, artisan food producers, we are building software to connect them to employees in workplaces. We are using an entirely unique model to completely reinvent what exceptional looks like in our category.

In short, we are building technology which can understand everyone’s food preferences and as a result construct relevant menus - getting them the right food, in the right place. This is a ‘cloud canteen’ mentality - a scalable, individual way to eating great, quality food daily. No lunch time will be the same again!

We are a VC backed start-up (world class investors including those behind Transferwise, Nested, LoveFilm, Shazam & Carwow to name just a few). We have grown 300% in the last 12 months and are turning over of £500,000/year, selling thousands of meals each month - clients include the likes of AirBnB, PWC, DHL, Etsy and more. We are currently a team of 10 people and have recently been named as one of the top 100 UK startups in the 2018 Startups 100 list.
