TRY THE WORLD
Try The World is the Netflix of Food, leveraging technology to disrupt the traditional $120bn US Specialty Food market. The company believes that food in the U.S. is either affordable but low quality or good quality but too expensive for an average consumer, caused by a fragmented supply chain and of a lack of leading online player. The company cuts out middle men in the global food supply chain, importing non-perishable gourmet foods from around the world, saving 30% margin vs. traditional retailers. Customers subscribe to receive foods based on their preferences for as low as $15/month or shop among 500+ unique SKUs on Try The World’s online shop not available elsewhere in the U.S. The New York based company was co-founded by 2 Columbia University grads and has shipped over 5 million products from over 30 countries in the last 2 years.
