About

Goodfood is Canada’s leading online grocery company, delivering fresh meal solutions and grocery items, directly to members’ doorsteps, making it easy for members from coast to coast to enjoy delicious meals at home every week.

Goodfood’s mission is to make the impossible come true, from farm to kitchen, by enabling members to do their weekly meal planning and grocery shopping in less than 1 minute. Goodfood members have access to a unique selection of products online as well as exclusive pricing made possible by its world class direct to consumer fulfilment eco-system that cuts out food waste and expensive retail overhead.

The Company
The Company has six manufacturing and fulfillment facilities, along with administrative offices, across Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.

Goodfood is a publicly traded company on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Over the past twelve months, Goodfood has achieved excellent financial results, with record results on a number of key growth and profitability metrics. Goodfood’s active subscriber count, revenue, and profitability all more than doubled year-over-year.

The company also expanded its product offering of ready-to-cook meals, introduced breakfast and ready-to-eat meal solutions and recently launched its private label grocery products, allowing Goodfood to enhance the members’ experience via a more comprehensive product offering, therefore significantly broadening the Company’s addressable market. More recently, with a green and sustainable vision in mind, Goodfood launched several sustainable initiatives, including a new proprietary reusable box which will eliminate several million single-use packaging items. The company has laid down a solid foundation to play a leading role in accelerating the adoption of online grocery shopping in Canada.

Jonathan Ferrari and Neil Cuggy cofounded Goodfood in 2014 with the goal of changing the way Canadians cook in mind.
