"Loss-making "ready to cook" meal delivery company HelloFresh is readying a Frankfurt stock market listing that looks to capitalize on its rapid global expansion, rising consumer demand for convenience and investor appetite for tech flotations.
HelloFresh also said revenue swelled 384 percent to 198 million euros in the first nine months of 2015, while losses rose to 58 million from 8.5 million a year before.
"In only four years, we have managed to disrupt the traditional food supply chain and build a global company," co-founder and CEO Dominik Richter said."
