Once upon a time, there was a big red box

It all started in 2012, with the delivery of one Gousto box. At the end of the first year, Gousto had delivered 7,500 boxes – but couldn’t find the tech needed to keep growing. There was only one thing for it: the tech team would have to build it.

Thanks to continued investments over the following decade, Gousto built the technology needed to scale significantly and start innovating the product into the offering we know today.

Gousto’s core purpose has always been to build products that have a positive impact on people and the planet – and that includes their technology. The team knew that if more companies used their tech, there’d be less engineering waste in the world. And so, Bento was born. Armed with the very best of Gousto’s technology and expertise, plus a team of tech pioneers at the helm, we’re ready to help other businesses become brilliant.
