DELLI is a simple, fun and inspiring food market and community, in your pocket.

DELLI wants to bring together the most inspiring, creative and independent food brands and businesses, transforming grocery shopping and cooking into the most simple and fun experience.

DELLI is a new concept from Simon Beckerman, also founder of fashion marketplace Depop: a community with 20 million registered users in 147 countries, and a team of over 300 people.

Delli wants to operate on three pillars:

  1. Community: We want to create a vibrant community that learns from and inspires each other. A community that harnesses the power of food to help create a better, happier life for one another. To embrace all that’s new and interesting in the world of food and it’s varied culture.
  2. Entrepreneurship: The best businesses are simple. We want to encourage entrepreneurship by creating a platform that makes it easy for new food ventures to flourish. Be it starting a new cloud-based restaurant or diversifying into cookware. DELLI allows both consumers and businesses to fulfill their aspirations.
  3. Ethical Eating: We are what we eat. And what we eat affects society and the planet. DELLI wants to encourage more ethical eating, whether it’s being more careful about the environment, or labor practices, treatment of food animals, or even the unintended effects of food policy. By empowering the right small businesses and inspiring consumers, we want to make eating better, easier and more fun.
