Grubby is on a mission to make plant-based cooking more accessible without costing the earth. A purpose-led recipe kit brand that’s served up over 50k meals since launch. Backed by founders of Skyscanner & World First. Raising funds to accelerate growth through product development & marketing.
The challenge of people eating more plant-based food lies in people’s kitchens. Most of us have been brought up on meat & two veg and the transition to cooking varied and tasty vegan meals isn't easy.
We aim to remove the friction of cooking plant-based. No frustrating supermarket sweeps for speciality ingredients or complex long recipes - just a simple, enlivened cooking experience without compromise on taste or our planet.
There has been a 400% increase in people moving to a plant-based diet in the last 5 years (2014-19). We estimate the total addressable market is est. 64% of the UK (flexis, veggies, vegans), our minimally packaged kits are appealing to a sizable cross-section.
