There are multiple benefits of buying fresh, locally-sourced groceries like supporting local produce growers and helping small-scale suppliers. However, wouldn’t it be great if you could do the same from the comfort of your home to skip the queue? Well, the Dutch startup Crisp offers an app-only based service that does exactly that, while supporting local small-scale suppliers and produce growers.
The company launched its services for the public in 2018 and it says the number of small-scale suppliers and growers for its platform have doubled to 360 since launch. In addition, the number of active users of its supermarket-app has apparently increased fivefold in the first five months of 2019. Now, the company has announced securing €5 million in Series A funding. We found out how the flourishing startup intends to utilise its freshly obtained funds and what its future plans are.
