Our Impact

Popchef

Popchef is a French eco-responsible, digital and sustainable leading foodtech company that offers several catering options: connected refrigerators and on-site counters (salad bar/sandwich/poke, coffee…), snacking (fruit, drinks…) and « plateaux-repas » delivery to the office or to people working from home through their own brand and the exclusive the Lenôtre license.

Meridiam was the lead investor in Popchef’s €15 million latest fundraising round.

Each of Popchef’s recipes are developed by a chef throughout the year according to the seasonality, freshness and availability of the products. Popchef relies on high quality food with selected seasonal and local ingredients.

Thanks to the connectivity of its offer and optimized logistics, Popchef offers a zero waste catering model through a returnable container service and redistributes unsold food to charities.

 

Their connected fridges are easy to install (2m2 and plug & play) and the onboarding into the logistics chain is straightforward. Among their main clients are: the unicorns Payfit and Blablacar, Aldi, Vinci, l’Oréal, as well as several hundred companies representing our economy: start-ups, SMEs, and large groups.

 

Popchef’s activity contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and mainly to goal #12 – Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns – notably by:

  • Reducing the production of waste, both in terms of food and packaging
  • Encouraging businesses and individuals to adopt sustainable practices
  • Using natural resources in a more sustainable way (strict requirements for food purchasing)

 

Popchef also makes a concrete contribution to SDGs 3,8 and 11, by:

  • Offering healthier and more accessible food options
  • Integrating talents from social integration programs into its teams every year
  • Helping to improve the living conditions of farmers
  • Implementing a clean and efficient supply chain and deliveries
