Kroger buys Chicago-based Home Chef for $200 mn

Kroger Co. the 2,800 store brand may close the deal in the second quarter.

Kroger, has planned to buy Chicago-based meal-kit seller Home Chef for $200 million in order to grab a larger chunk of the online grocery market.

Like other meal-kit firms, Home Chef offers doorstep delivery of recipes to its subscribers. Kroger will pay $200 million for Chicago-based Home Chef, and may pay an additional $500 million over five years provided the sales reach desired milestones. Kroger plans to bring Home Chef kits in its supermarkets.

Competition among meal-kit companies is fierce. Albertsons bought Plated last year, Walmart is expanding its easy-to-make dinners, and meal-kit company Blue Apron started selling some of its kits in Costco stores. Amazon, which bought Whole Foods last year, also sells its own meal kits.
