Growth across all segments

Revenue generated in Australia surged by 140% to A$23.7 million (€15.1 million) in the June half and notable the segment is approaching profitability.

Furthermore, the total number of active customers globally has more than doubled to 125,000 compared to this period last year.

Committed to generating customer value

Marley’s CEO Fabian Siegel said: “We are now offering the most choice, with 20 dishes in two sizes after our pilot launch of a new manufacturing technology in Germany, which we are planning to roll out globally.

“At the same time, we are also making meal kits more accessible by launching our lower-price product, Dinnerly, in Australia.

“The combination of strong topline growth driven by all regions, increasing margins, stable customer acquisition costs, and moderate general and administrative expenses increases gives us all the ingredients to continue on our journey towards profitability.

“The fact that our Australian operations are now reaching that point after only three years shows the potential of the meal kit business model.”
