US meal-kit supplier Blue Apron has reportedly appointed advisers to help the business on its planned listing this year.
Blue Apron is to work with Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Citigroup on the flotation, which has been lined up for 2017, Reuters has reported.
Last month, Blue Apron acquired US-based meat producer BN Ranch for an undisclosed sum.
Matt Wadiak, the founder and COO of Blue Apron, said the company was “furthering our vision to build a better food system by making high-quality, responsibly-raised meat accessible to home chefs across the country.”
Blue Apron was set up in 2012 by Wadiak, Matt Salzberg and Ilia Papas.
According to Fortune‘s 2016 “unicorn list”, the New York City-based business was valued ay US$2bn.
In February, Blue Apron appointed Gary Hirshberg, the chairman and co-founder or US organic dairy business Stonyfield Farm, to its board. Blue Apron also gave a board set to Tracy Britt Cool, the CEO of US kitchenware firm Pampered Chef, which is owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.
