Our latest concept in the Mission Studio (backed by Nesta) is “Sexy Greens”.

🧐 What's the concept at high level?

What if we could change the food retail environment to make distribution easier for fresh food businesses? Our vision is to create a network of fresh food automated “micro markets” underlying an engaging digital customer experience.

⏰ Why now?

The new normal after lockdown has created new opportunities. More gig workers eating on the go, WFH making canteens obsolete, entrepreneurs spinning up food businesses looking to scale - Covid has changed how, where and when people eat. With this venture we can connect the dots to succeed in a new food environment.

🍏 The Impact

This concept has the potential to shift the balance of food availability, with the potential to impact a broad cross section of society by providing better access to convenient affordable fresh food instead of unhealthy snack bars.

The ambition for this venture is to be:

A new retail channel for food producers and brands capturing real-time insights Streamlining access into automated-retail as a distribution channel by broking between site locations, food producers and consumers A simple way for employers or organisations to subsidise healthy food for their teams 24/7 access to extensive range of fresh and healthy food brands Distributed national footprint in high traffic locations Promotions, loyalty and rewards capabilities Fully managed service; tech, maintenance and stock
