PACP Client Portfolio Update

Chefs For Foodies is encouraging healthy and convenient cooking from scratch through its marketplace and platform that combines professional chefs and their uniquely designed food boxes with an E-Pantry full of artisan produce, along with the leading brands in cooking equipment and essentials.

The marketplace model, range of products and in particular brand partnerships, such as with the leading Italian coffee brand Illy, very cleverly allows a lot of cross customer marketing and data collaboration, which in turn builds revenues with a much reduced CPA.

Revenues this year are heading towards £700,000 and the business is raising £1.2m EIS eligible, with £310k committed to date.
