About Robert

Groko is a smart meal planning app. It gives you a customized meal plan, and let's you add the ingredients to your Tesco.com basket with one button.

You can check out the latest version of the app at: https://groko.me/version-test/test_10

The first version of Groko's technology should be finished by the end of October. Work will then move to recipe development, food photography, and videography.

The aim is to release the first version of our technology in late January 2017.

I am currently looking for a cofounder. This person would be mainly responsible for recipe creation, food photography, and videography. We would share responsibility for product development, marketing, and business strategy.
