AVING News interviewed Kim Eun-jeong, the CEO of Stay Jungle, which participated in the MIK HOT SPOT (Made in Korea Online Exhibition) Seoul Food Startup Center.
Please introduce your company briefly.
Hi. This is Kim Eun-jeong, the CEO of Stay
Jungle. Stay Jungle provides dishes customized for the ingredients and efficacy
based on the results of personal health information. When customers enter
information such as height, sex, and age in the Stay Jungle app, we prepare a
diet plan based on the bmi index with the right calorie intake. We also cook
for the customers.
We delivered the cooked food within three
hours of cooking by quick delivery. We deliver it every two days, and you can
check the information on what you ate before. The biggest feature of Stay
Jungle is that you can monitor your health while looking at your changing body.
How is the diet plan made?
Our diet plan mainly consists of four
types. Healthy, diet, anti-aging, and brain health. When the customer selects
the desired diet, it goes through our algorithm and the meal is assigned. We
make the meal by using ingredients that match the ingredients and efficacy.
Currently, there are about 20 menus in operation per day, and we plan to
diversify our meals over time.
What is the future business direction?
We are planning to expand our business nationwide very soon. We are also aiming to go beyond Korea and enter the global market. The US and other countries as well. We are particularly going to target international students who have a difficult time preparing meals.
Any last words you would like to say?
We know how hard it is for the housewives
to make meals, especially when they work. Now, we will close the kitchen with a
meal plan that catches two birds with one stone.
