Zapp, the on-demand service has launched its first retail collaboration with Stocked – the innovative frozen meal-solution service.
Stocked creates nutritious, sauce-based meals which are packed with protein, with each meal is frozen into handy little blocks that easily slide into the freezer.
Speaking on the launch, Charlie Gilpin, co-Founder of Stocked, described how the team got themselves prepared for their first ever retail launch.
He said: “We’ve already sent around 700 packs of Stocked to Zapp’s central distribution centre and stores. Sam Moss and I manage everything, all the way down to the batch-cooking of the blocks themselves so we had to triple our production to get ready for this launch.
“Launching with Zapp has allowed us to provide the ultimate mealtime solution for our customers. Not only will it be available in minutes, but the option for customers to build on their Stocked Blocks order with other key ingredients means they have everything they could possibly need at their doorstep.”
The company was founded by school friends and hometown neighbours, Moss, and ex-street food Gilpin in April last year.
Alex Hough, VP of procurement and partnerships at Zapp, added: “We are proud to be continuing our support of small businesses by being the first retail partner for Stocked, the innovative frozen meal-prep brand. At Zapp, we know that sometimes life can get in the way, so having quick and easy-to-use products such as Stocked, available 24/7, are perfect for those ‘need it now’ moments.”
The duo has launched three of their most popular dished with Zapp, including the Great Taste Award-winning Chicken Tinga, which can be delivered straight to customers doors within minutes.
