Who are we?
fighting food waste
Jane Dimitrova and Velin Kerkov are the co-founders of Foodobox. After several years abroad – in Italy and Scotland – they returned to their beloved Bulgaria to contribute with their experience and knowledge.
Here they saw a huge potential and decided to launch the 1st mobile app in Bulgaria against food waste. The start-up was founded in Sofia in Mid ’21 and is now present in the biggest Bulgarian cities. In December ’23 the app was officially launched in Bucharest.
This is some of our team members celebrating Foodobox’s 1st anniversary.
All of the guests really enjoyed the cake that was made out of many different pieces of surplus cake.
We are a small but united team that supports each other and enjoys what we do because we strongly believe in our mission.
