Crisp increases losses to 15.2 million euros!


Dutch online supermarket Crisp (almost) doubled its loss in 2022. Still, the start-up claimed it had a very good year, and that these “start-up losses” are not a problem.

According to plan: Profits are still a long way off in the world of online supermarkets. After competitor Picnic Technologies published losses, smaller competitor Crisp now also had to admit that its losses almost doubled to 15.2 million euros last year.

However, that is still “exactly according to plan“, CEO Tom Peeters told RetailTrends. “Start-up losses are part of building a big company that makes a lot of impact”, he stated.

To Belgium
Although Crisp did not release precise sales figures, it claims its sales rose by 150 %. According to Maarten Reul interview, the number of app downloads and the number of orders also went times 2.5. Margins are also said to have improved: “We have had a very good year in 2021 and we look to the future with confidence”, Peeters added.

Crisp still gets half of its sales from the Dutch Randstad region, although the grocery service has expanded to Belgium in the middle of 2022. The number of Belgian orders doubled in September alone, the company reported earlier.
