A startup Foodsi has gained PLN 6 million in a seed round. The funding was provided by, among others, CofounderZone and Satus Starter, and business angels – including Arkadiusz Krupicz and Piotr Czajkowski, the founders of, and Marcin Celejwski, Piotr Markowski, and Bartosz Ciołkowski. In this transaction we represented the startup.

It is also worth to mention that in the last year, Foodsi gained PLN 1.1 million in a funding round lead by the AIP Seed fund, on which we also had the pleasure of advising. Thanks to that, the company has created an application, tripled the number of available venues and increased the number of users by more than 2.6 times.

Foodsi is a startup helping to fight food waste in the spirit of zero waste. The company has created a platform that allows caterers and shops to sell surplus food. Using the platform, customers may purchase products, paying even 30% of the initial price. On the other hand, caterers do not have to throw away unsold meals and gain an additional source of income but also brand new customers. Users can choose from offers from more than 3,000 venues in the entire Poland (to name a few, Warsaw, Wrocław, Kraków, Poznań, and the Tri-City) and reserve a package of their choice in a few seconds. It may be picked up on the same or the following day before the venue closes. The package content is always a surprise and depends on the current menu or regular sales at the relevant venue.

Foodsi’s partners are restaurants, bakeries, confectioneries, cafés, and grocery shops. Among them, there are brands well-known in Poland, to name a few, Salad Story, Pasibus, Piekarnie Oskroba, Olimp restaurants, and Koku Sushi. Interestingly, it is not only food that can be rescued by means of Foodsi.  There is also a possibility – specially for pet owners – to prepare a food package for their pets. The app’s offer has also been extended to include florists, potted plant shops, and cosmetics shops.

With the funds raised in this process, the company will be able to increase its reach in Poland and then prepare for expansion abroad.
