Kitche, a free app which helps users reduce food waste and save money, has secured an undisclosed investment. The money came from London-based QVentures, described as a private members club for sophisticated investors.
Kitche makes it easier to manage food at home, saving money and reducing waste all within one free app. Users can import all products from their food shopping receipt in one click of a phone camera which provides a real-time digital version of their kitchen products for use on-the-move and for recipe creation.
“We created Kitche after a conversation with friends in the park about real-life problems with home food waste,” said founder Alex Vlassopulos.
“We are excited to take Kitche to the next phase with the help of the QVentures investment.”
QVentures managing partner Robert Walsh added:
“It’s fantastic to see innovative technology companies such as Kitche taking action towards creating a more sustainable food industry. We are proud to join Kitche on this journey.”
Kitche joins a list of several UK-based start-ups, such as Rosecut Technologies, Ocyan, and Smartia, who have already received investment from QVentures.
