Our story

Now based in the UK, Ooooby started as a growers network in New Zealand in 2008 before launching a home delivery hub in Auckland in 2010 with the single focus of supplying households with food produced as locally as possible. As the number of hubs increased, in-house software was developed to deal with the real world pain points of operating a veg box scheme. In 2019 Ooooby sold the company owned hubs to the local operation teams and transitioned to a platform model, launching this model in the UK in 2020.
