How it all started

Founded in 2010, Kcal is the brainchild of Mark Carroll and Andreas L Borgmann, two passionate and ambitious entrepreneurs. Kcal is on a mission to prove that “healthy” means more than a calorie count. It means being an active and positive member of the community by helping it make better decisions that fulfill inside and out. At Kcal what we help you achieve on the inside shows on the outside.

Today, Kcal is on its way to owning the exclusive label of five-star meal providers at takeaway prices, making the world a better place through this bold and unique concept.

Supporting Kcal are its other household brands - Kcal Meal Plans, the company's bespoke healthy meal plan provider, currently serves thousands of meals per week to its subscribers and is on a similar fast growth track.
