Balderton Capital, HV Capital and DELLI: bringing good food and people together

Tuesday 13th September, 2022

DELLI empowers and inspires the next generation to express themselves with food. The platform enables food makers to buy and sell their products. Founded by Simon Beckerman, DELLI recently raised a $7.2m round of funding.

At the forefront of Beckerman’s priorities is sustainability. DELLI tackles the age-old food waste problem through its ‘drop’ model, where a product is limited in quantity and is only available for a limited time. This creates a buzz around small releases whilst promoting sustainability.

Beckerman commented that the raise would “further ignite growth and expand its [DELLI’s] offer to makers and consumers alike”. Unique to DELLI’s offering is how it builds its users up from home-sellers to established businesses. On the app, sellers can list their products, manage orders and develop their brand.

Marriott Harrison represented co-leads Balderton Capital and HV Capital on the investment, two of Europe’s leading VC firms.

David Strong led the MH team, which included Graham Halliday, James Fleming, Sofia Gottgens and Elisabetta Bestetti.
