About Craviors

Craviors, a meal-kit delivery website was basically an initiative made by Joanna to turn around the lives of the Filipino food artisans. The vision behind Craviors is that every cook is an artist, their kitchen is a stage and they deserve to show their talents to the public. The belief is that every meal can be crafted and prepared beautifully in home kitchens and enjoyed hot and fresh. Craviors is easy to use and convenient. It enables the best ingredients delivered at your doorstep allowing a foodnatic to cook the most delicious meals at home.

Every artist has a uniqueness; similarly, every cook has a typical way of cooking. Every meal has a peculiar taste and this essence results in a unique experience. Craviours provides a stage for all the Filipino food artisans to display their talents in the form of delicious home-cooked meals, with no extra money or brick and mortar business.

Amidst the rising population in the Philippines cities, a need to find a solution for the increasing unemployment was required. A meal kit delivery service provided a platform for chefs to cook at their home kitchens and deliver meals to hyper-local customers. It provided the amalgamation of a restaurant-like food and the hygiene of a home-cooked meal. Yo!Meals, an integrated meal-kit delivery service, is the result of the collaboration of team Craviors with the cross-functional team at FATbit technologies creating a solution, hitting the sweet spot of customers, who do not have time to shop.

The Problem

Craviours required a platform that would be a blend of e-commerce and food delivery services, catering to the needs of Gen-zers and working people. The reasons which led to the emergence of Craviors, the meal-kit ordering and delivery marketplace are listed below.

To cater to the needs of the rising population

In order to serve the increasing population in major cities in the Philippines, the need for a meal-kit delivery solution became imperative. It gave a sense of independence to the unemployed cooks.

To inculcate better and healthier eating habits in centennials.

With increased awareness, the youth are adopting better and healthier eating habits. A home-cooked meal with fresh ingredients is the most hygienic and healthiest option for health-conscious Gen-Zers.

Assisting home-cooked meals

Cooking at home can be tedious, as it is not easy to collect the right ingredients required for cooking a perfect meal. A meal kit delivery solution serves assistance by delivering ingredients at customer’s doorstep.

Catering an increased number of working people
