365 Retail Markets, the unattended retail technology specialist, has announced its acquisition of Kafoodle, a UK-based food technology company that specialises in menu and kitchen management, nutritional data, and allergy compliance.
Adding Kafoodle’s technology into 365’s portfolio will complement the company’s existing offerings and enhance its ability to provide comprehensive solutions to its clients. The acquisition also expands 365 Retail Markets’ reach in the United Kingdom and European markets, where Kafoodle has established a strong presence.
Kafoodle’s software simplifies recipe and menu management, nutritional data tracking, and allergen regulation compliance for food service operators (FSO). The acquisition is expected to empower 365 customers to easily create menus that cater to the needs of specific demographics, such as those with dietary restrictions or allergies.
“Kafoodle’s technology is truly innovative and aligns with our commitment to providing data-led insight to our clients while streamlining their business processes,” said 365 Retail Markets chief executive, Joe Hessling. “We are thrilled to welcome them to the 365 family, and we are excited about the possibilities that this acquisition presents.”
“Everyone in the food service industry has the same responsibility to provide key information about the food they serve, and Kafoodle’s mission has always been to streamline how businesses accurately provide data to consumers,” said Kafoodle Founder and CEO, Tarryn Gorre.
“We are excited to join 365 Retail Markets’ team, to offer global support to food service businesses and tackle the challenges surrounding what’s in the food we consume and how it is sourced.”
The Kafoodle team will continue to operate out of their UK headquarters and will work closely with 365 Retail Markets’ global team to ensure a seamless integration. Customers of both companies can expect to see new and enhanced solutions in the near future.
