Sydney startup Foodbomb takes the top gong in first ever Smart50 StartupSmart award

Food comparison platform Foodbomb has taken home the top gong in the first Smart50 StartupSmart award.

The Sydney-based startup was one of six startups shortlisted for the StartupSmartaward, a new addition to SmartCompany’s annual Smart50 awards celebrating the achievements of small business, and ranking entrants by annual revenue growth.

Foodbomb was selected as by a trio of judges; Startup Victoria chief executive Judy Anderson, M8 Ventures founder and angel investor Alan Jones, and StartupSmart’s very own features and profiles editor Dominic Powell.

Launched in June 2015 by Paul Tory, Foodbomb started life as Butcherman – a B2C platform for meat sales. Through running Butcherman, Tory identified “a problem much greater”, he says.

The platform aggregates food suppliers on to a single platform, allowing cafes and restaurants to purchase produce for lower prices.

It launched as Foodbomb in September last year, and now has more than 100 active customers and 30 suppliers on the platform. According to Tory, it’s processing about 500 transactions each month.

Now, Foodbomb is working towards closing its seed round, which will partly be invested into a marketing strategy. Read more
