From being one of the first users of the product of Perfekto to seeing the founders go through Y Combinator and growing their business, we believe they are the right team for the job.
We invested in Perfekto because of their ambition of reducing food waste and making the future more sustainable. The founders Jan (Sonect), Anahi (Uber Grocery), and Juan (Walmart e-Commerce), have personally experienced the problem of food waste and have the passion and operational experience to solve it in a meaningful way. They are relentless.
Food waste is a huge problem (and also a +$200B opportunity) as more than 50 % of fruits & veggies en up wasted, and a lot of this waste is also due to cosmetic imperfections, short shelf life or inefficiencies.
We are very impressed with the growth Perfekto has achieved in 2022 and we believe that this is just the start of the journey since they are constantly expanding their coverage as well as the products they offer.
