Gousto to create 1,000 new jobs as sales surge in lockdown

Gousto box

Gousto will create 1,000 new jobs as part of ambitious plans to ramp up its expansion following a surge in sales.

The recipe box provider wants to increase its customer fulfilment capacity threefold by 2022 and will build “multiple” new warehouses to service increasing demand. 

It comes after Gousto’s revenues hit £83m during the first six months of 2020, already exceeding its sales in the whole of 2019. It now expects to make its first-ever profit in 2020, compared to an operating loss of £12.5m last year.
