USA – Meallogix, an e-commerce for meal prep market, announced today that it has closed a US$1.25 million Seed round of funding, promising to take care of the more administrative tasks associated with running a meal prep or meal kit company.

The Meallogix platform costs US$149 a month. The company says it will use the new funds to build out its platform, scale its operations, hire additional people and expand partnerships.

Meallogix digitizes a company’s supply chain, handles nutrition label creation, shopping list creation, recipe costing, delivery options and more. The Meallogix dashboard also gives meal prep companies analytics around financials and menu performance.

Meal prep and meal kits have seen a bit of a resurgence during the pandemic. With restaurants shut down and more people eating at home, services that provide such pre-fab meals help consumers break out of their habitual eating ruts and discover something new.

Meallogix is providing the picks-and-shovels to those types of meal prep companies and allows them to focus more on the food by digitizing the day-to-day operations that go into prepping the kits.

The company’s Seed raise shows that at least some investors think the meal prep and meal kit categories are robust enough to continue as the pandemic recedes.

Its platform is the first end-to-end solution for meal prep operators and food delivery businesses that automates entire workflows and eliminates human processes – except for cooking, which they love the most! which is cooking.

Meallogix helps the 11,000 busy, overlooked, and overworked Meal Prep Owners to boost their business growth and eliminate their manual workload by providing an online solution which fully automates their current operational & business processes.

Unlike any other CRM their all-in-one platform digitalizes all manual processes allowing the Meal Prep Owners to remove obstacles in scaling their business, eliminating 80% of all manual processes from their workflow and immediately reduces their food costs by 15%-45%.
