Founded in 2017 by Adrienne and Gordon Macaulay borne from frustration in finding a meal solution for Gordon’s mother, Gordon noted;

“Traditional meal delivery services we saw were both very expensive and suffered from slow delivery. Parsley Box have reinvented the service by offering next day delivery and a wide range of meals for customers just like my mother.”

The investment was led by Mobeus, who have a successful track record investing in consumer brands. Amit Hindocha, Investment partner commented:

“Mobeus were impressed with the growth rate that Parsley Box has achieved in a very short time and the real need for a quality elderly nutrition brand for this growing demographic.

“The brand allows Parsley Box customers to remain independent and in their own home while freeing them from the time-consuming preparation of meals”

The investment allows Parsley Box to accelerate product development, recruitment and customer acquisition.
