"2021 has set off to a strong start. Our teams have been working hard to de-bottleneck the capacity constraints we were experiencing over the majority of 2020, especially in our US market. As a result, we've welcomed more customers than ever to HelloFresh", says Dominik Richter, CEO and co-founder of HelloFresh. "As consumers around the world have been adapting to new habits, like buying groceries online, they've also discovered the many advantages of our full meal solutions over traditional grocery shopping. Since we offer our customers great value for money, convenience as well as tasty and healthy meals, I am confident that we will benefit disproportionately from the shift to increased online grocery penetration."
Growth initiatives continue to pay off
