Farmdrop - The revolution will be delicious. Atomico’s Zennström comments: “Atomico likes to invest in companies looking to tackle some of the bigger sustainability challenges our planet is facing. That is why we’re incredibly proud to have led Farmdrop’s second investment round. They are deploying innovative technology to simplify the food chain and meet the growing demand for more sustainably sourced, local food”.
We're on a mission to fix the food chain by making it easier and more enjoyable for people to buy amazing food direct from local producers online. Did you know your food on average has travelled just 30 miles in a Farmdrop shop compared to the 600 with a supermarket.
Farmdrop represents a new economic approach to food retailing whereby the benefits of cutting out the middlemen are shared between customers who enjoy fresher, healthier food at lower prices, and smaller scale producers who enjoy best-ever trading terms. Our mission is to Fix The Food Chain, something we plan to do by providing Londoners with their best food retail experience in 2016 before scaling further afield in 2017. Our supporters include London foodies Gizzi Erskine and Tommi Miers, we work closely with the Soil Association and have been backed by the entrepreneurs behind Asos, Love Film, Zoopla, and Street Car. As of May 2017 we received a £7M Series A investment from Atomico. Farmdrop founder Ben Pugh has been shortlisted for the Bloomberg 2016 Innovation award for changing the environment.
A revolution is happening in food. Online grocery sales will double by 2020 and everyday more of us discover how eating real food with trustworthy provenance can enrich our daily lives.
We’re a dynamic, friendly and people-focussed team that is expanding fast, working out of our hub and office in Bermondsey. We are passionate about using technology to fix the food-chain and getting a great deal for the farmer. We bring together people who really care about what they eat and how it’s produced. As a team member you'll enjoy i) a 20% staff discount on all your Farmdrop shopping, ii) team lunches twice a week and iii) flexible working, with scope for working from home.
