HungryPanda, the global leader in Asian food delivery, is today pleased to announce that it has acquired Australian food delivery platform EASI and New Zealand Asian food delivery platform BUY@HOME.

HungryPanda is the leading Asian food delivery platform and is now operating in more than 60 cities across 10 countries.
The Series D round was led by Perwyn, alongside Kinnevik, 83North, Felix Capital, Piton Capital, Vintage, Burda Principal Investments and Kreos Capital.
The latest investment brings the total raised by the company to $220 Million and will be used to further enhance its business globally and pursue strategic acquisition opportunities.

SYDNEY, Jan. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- These two transactions will help HungryPanda improve its local operations, empower restaurants to achieve greater business success and improve consumer experience by widening their choice of authentic Asian restaurants. Coming on the back of HungryPanda's successful US$130m fund raising in December 2021, these transactions now position the business strongly to capture the huge overseas Asian food delivery market globally.

Founded in 2017, HungryPanda has become the largest overseas Asian food delivery platform in ten countries, including the US, UK and Australia, operating across more than sixty cities. With these transactions HungryPanda is now the Asian food delivery leader in Australia and New Zealand, bringing the greatest choice of authentic Asian food to customers in all the major cities.

Founder and CEO of HungryPanda, Kelu Liu said: "These acquisitions are an important milestone for HungryPanda in continuing to build the leading overseas Asian food delivery platform. By combining our world-class technology and delivery network with the wider coverage of restaurants we can now offer consumers, I am hugely excited about the future potential for our business in these important markets."

Kitty Lu, National Operations Manager at EASI, explained, "This is a strategic alliance that will increase our effectiveness and reach in a busy marketplace, both regionally and internationally. EASI has been growing nationally at a rapid pace since our launch in Australia and internationally and we are excited by the potential we can achieve working with Eric and the team at HungryPanda."

Mr. Liu continued "Improving the local Asian food delivery service is only the first step for us. We are dedicated to introducing a complete Asian fresh food and grocery delivery service, and adding local merchants' activities and targeted discounts for our consumers with our aim to establish a comprehensive one-stop lifestyle service for overseas Chinese and local residents who have an interest in Asian food culture."

Besides, HungryPanda is awarded in the Deloitte 2021 UK Technology Fast 50, making the company the only food delivery platform in the ranking.

Global Asian Food Delivery Leader HungryPanda Secures $130 Million Series D Round

LONDON, Dec. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- HungryPanda has today announced a $130 Million Series D round to strengthen its position as the leading specialist online food delivery platform serving Asian restaurants and populations overseas. The London headquartered company has now raised $220 Million over the last three years to establish itself as the category leader globally. Perwyn, the family-backed private equity and growth capital investor led the latest round, joining investors Kinnevik, Felix Capital, 83North, Piton Capital, Vintage, Burda Principal Investments and debt provider Kreos Capital.

HungryPanda was established in 2017 by Founder and CEO Eric Liu, a computer science graduate at the University of Nottingham who wanted to fix a problem he experienced first-hand, getting hold of authentic Chinese food on-demand away from home. Starting as a student project with a clear focus, the business has quickly grown into a global leader.

In 2021 HungryPanda continued its rapid expansion launching in multiple new countries across Asia. The company is now operating in more than 60 cities across the UK, the US, Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea. It has also expanded its product offering to include Asian groceries, to further expand its market opportunity under the Panda Fresh brand.

HungryPanda will invest in growing its market share in the Asian food delivery space to cement its market leader position while exploring new business opportunities, expanding its market offering and exploring strategic acquisition opportunities. This will be supported by investment in technology, business strategy and talent.

Eric Liu, Founder and CEO of HungryPanda, commented, "HungryPanda has achieved exceptional growth over the last four years. We now have the ability and experience to launch and operate in new cities in just two weeks and have established ourselves as the market leader due to our laser focus on developing the best service and providing high-quality products for our customers."

Liu continued, "We're delighted to welcome Perwyn as our new investor and Board member, and are grateful for the continued support from our previous investors and new investors in this round, whose expertise has been invaluable in this phenomenal year of growth. This new round of investment is an affirmation of our past achievements and shall open a new chapter for the business to explore new opportunities and more spaces in lifestyle services for our customers."

Andrew Wynn, Perwyn Founder and Managing Partner, added, "We are extremely pleased to have been able to lead the investment of HungryPanda, as we see the huge potential in this category. HungryPanda has a deep understanding and extensive experience in targeting audiences with a more tailored experience than others can offer. We have been watching Eric and his team's development in this space with great interest and are impressed by the outstanding speed and scale and of their success and growth in this area. We are looking forward to working with the HungryPanda team to expand across services, regions and audiences."

Board members of HungryPanda have a wealth of industrial experience and unique insight, including David Buttress, former CEO of food delivery giant Just Eat; Laurel Bowden, partner at 83North (investor in Just Eat and Wolt); Antoine Nussenbaum, partner at Felix Capital (investor in Deliveroo); and Akhil Chainwala, Investment Director at Kinnevik (investor in Oda and HelloFresh).
