Diet food home delivery specialist Diet Chef has secured Ł1.5m in debt finance from Edinburgh-based crowdlending platform LendingCrowd.
The firm, which was launched by entrepreneurs Kevin Dorren and Andrew Veitch from a garage in 2008, is now the largest of its kind in the UK with 150,000 customers and a Ł15m turnover.
Dorren said it was ?important for the company to have the right funding package in place to drive future growth and to work with a like-minded entrepreneurial organisation?.
He added: ?LendingCrowd thinks like we do, so it was a real bonus for us to be able to partner with another expanding online business that shares our vision.?
