German e-commerce outfit Gourmondo, a purveyor of high-end meats priced up to €90, has entered the digital trading space in Austria, the UK and Ireland.

The expansion means consumers can now access Gourmondo in five countries. The company has been active in Germany and the Netherlands since 2002 and 2011 respectively.

The online distributor of wines, delicatessens and speciality foods from around the world boasts a fine collection of quality meats with its most expensive premium dry-aged rib eye steak retailing at €89.90 (approximately $95). More affordable steaks can be found for €14.90 ($15).

Its range of exclusive champagnes, rare wines, refined oils and luxury meat are all, where possible, sourced sustainably and regionally. The business is also certified organic .

‘Delighted’ by growth

Gourmondo offers top-quality culinary delights from outstanding producers with the most extraordinary products,” said Pascal Zier, managing director of Gourmondo, in a press statement.

We are delighted to be able to extend our premium range of over 17,000 products to Austria, the UK and Ireland.

“Pre-selection, manufacturing processes, and the quality of the raw materials are Gourmondo’s top priorities. To ensure our customers receive their orders quickly and without hassle, we focus on excellent, reliable service.

The business promises next-day delivery to customers who order food before 4pm.

Gourmondo, alongside German outfit ES Foods, was acquired by Delticom AG for a joint price of €30 million ($31.7m) in the spring of 2016. It claims the DAX-listed firm Delticom is one of Europe’s largest e-commerce companies, with more than 300 online stores across 41 countries.

During the first nine months of the year, parent company Delticom reported an 11% increase in revenue to €393m ($416m) in its third-quarter trading, posted on 14 November.
