Our vision at Choco is to build a global, yet local, food system that is resourceful, fair to the people, and sustainable for the planet. In order to achieve this, our mission is to lead the world’s transition towards sustainable food systems.
It is a big and meaningful mission and in order for us to achieve it, it has to be broken down into smaller objectives. Our first step towards realizing this mission is our food-supply ordering platform which is connecting restaurants and suppliers in order to streamline the way food is traded between them.
The current crisis revealed some of the inefficiencies the food industry is having. We want to support the industry that is so dear to us and help them utilize their potential. Thanks to our investors (COATUE, Bessemer Venture Partners, Atlantic Labs and others), we have the means to support our ambition. Our Series A funding rounds present us now with a unique opportunity and privilege to develop valuable tools for the gastronomy industry of a post-pandemic world.
