Our investment in leading UK recipe box company Gousto is helping people cook high-quality, fresh food at home with minimal waste.
Founded in 2012, Gousto pioneered the recipe box offering in the UK, identifying a need for convenient and easy to cook recipes which provide exciting variety at home, whilst reducing food waste. A study by environmental services company Foodsteps revealed that Gousto meals produced 23% fewer carbon emissions than the equivalent meals from supermarket stores, driven by minimising food waste, a tighter supply chain and reductions in plastic usage.
Each Gousto order saves 2kg food waste and 7kg of CO2 emissions, compared to the equivalent meal purchased at a supermarket. In 2021 alone, shopping at Gousto saved 69,000 tonnes in CO2 emissions, the equivalent of removing over 26,000 cars from UK roads.
Driven by its purpose to build a product that has a positive impact on people and the planet, Gousto became a certified B Corporation™ in 2021, joining a global community of businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
