Foodles, the French scale-up that offers its employees fresh, chef-prepared, affordable food any time of the day via its connected fridges, has entered the UK market to change the way people work eat. Foodles currently delivers 40,000 meals per week to an impressive French customer base including Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton, ODDO BHF, Ubisoft and Veepee and has served over a million meals to date with over 300 fridges installed at locations across France – are all profitable.
Ideal for medium to large businesses looking for an alternative to outdated canteen or takeaway solutions, Foodles’ connected smart fridges are easy to install and maintain for a monthly fee. Sustainability is at the heart of Foodles’ offering with its proprietary technology platform that intelligently tracks usage in real time and analyzes consumer preferences so fridges can be stocked accordingly – a significant advantage when both hybrid and shift or flexible working are ever-present and gain weight. Compared to traditional canteens, Foodles’ connected refrigerators can reduce food waste by at least 10 percent, while the use of reusable containers ensures zero-waste packaging.
Some of the key sectors Foodles is targeting are hospitality, corporate and real estate to fill a gap and provide quality, fresh and affordable food to employees 24/7. Likewise, Foodles aims to help employers create a sociable work environment to improve connection of time spent in the office and break the culture of eating at the desk.
Renaud Barnoin, UK General Manager, Foodles, commented: “Foodles is about giving people access to higher quality, more sustainable meals while they work. As we all adapt to new hybrid work environments, organizations need to provide meaningful incentives for employees to return to the office. With more than half of UK workers saying they never take their full lunch break and the average worker spending just 27 minutes on lunch, a change in mindset and behavior is needed. By providing fresh, tasty and affordable meals any time of the day, companies can foster a collaborative atmosphere around meal and break times and contribute to a more cohesive and friendly corporate culture – something that is high on the priority list for every business leader today.”
Foodles has more than 310 smart fridges on-site in more than 250 locations across France. The company’s UK launch marks Foodles’ first venture outside of France, which will be followed by wider European expansion. To learn more about Foodles, visit foodles.com.
