Rocket Internet’s HelloFresh raises €85 million from new and previous investors

German meal delivery startup HelloFresh, a Rocket Internet company, has raised €85 million from a new unnamed investor along with previous investor Baillie Gifford.

Rocket Internet has reduced its stake in HelloFresh from 56% to 53% while the deal values the company at around $2 billion with an IPO reportedly in its sights in the future.

Gründerszene (German) reports that the Berlin-based company has been making loss this year after a high marketing spend ahead of the company’s launch in North America.

The company was founded in 2012 by CEO Dominik Richter and COO Thomas Griesel. It had previously raised more than $270 million in funding in several rounds from investors that also include Insight Venture Partners and Phenomen Ventures.
