Trybe, a new community based food delivery app, has launched in London to help connect enthusiastic home cooks with their hungry neighbours. The Trybe app, which is based on a community model, aims to build a movement of people who want to get to know their neighbours through their shared love of cooking and eating.

By offering hyperlocal eating in the palm of your hand, the Trybe community supports meaningful micro entrepreneurs making it possible for anyone to set up a restaurant in their own kitchen. For their neighbours, it’s the perfect way to try delicious authentic craft meals not currently available from traditional eateries or other apps. Using a postcode-based delivery service in a growing number of areas within London, the platform provides the level of convenience expected by many busy professionals.

Meeting the demand for convenient real food, Trybe is resonating well in vegan, gluten-free and health conscious communities as well. The app features dozens of passionate specialty cooks and tasty recipes to choose from.

Co-founder Ilkka Salo says: “Many health conscious people want to avoid takeaways or ready meals but don’t always have time to cook from scratch. The Trybe app changes this by delivering authentic home cooking to hungry people, helping to form new connections within the community as a result.”

Trybe started in East London but recently expanded into areas of North London. With a delivery area covering all of Central London, Trybe is set to reach the entire Greater London and other major UK cities by January 2017.

The Trybe app is available to download for free on iOS and Android.
