Singapore-based Komorebi Food Ventures which is focused on investing in early-stage food brands, has acquired a 30 per cent stake in Dosirak, a traditional Korean lunch box maker, according to an announcement.
The deal will help Singapore-based Dosirak – which means lunch boxes in Korean – expand its brand across Asia and grow in the region’s salad space, competing with the likes of Salad Stop in the healthy food segment. The traditional Korean lunch box needs to be shaken to mix the ingredients.
“We are going to deliver ‘Old Korean made new’ i.e. traditional healthy Korean recipes, updated for millennials and serviced in a unique packaging that is perfectly suited for delivery,” said Guillaume Pagnoux, co-founder of Komorebi.
Founded in 2017, Komorebi Food Ventures’ focus is investing in B2B, B2C companies and developing quick service food brands.
Dosirak’s aim aligns with Komorebi’s plan to be a leading player in the fast healthy food in the region.
Dosirak is targeting to reach over 50 stores in the near future. Dosirak will work on developing a wider product portfolio, which will include signature sauces along side healthy Korean snacks and beverages.
Komorebi co-founder Maninder Sabharwal said, the company is planning to take the brand to the next level given the massive growth potential for Korean food.
