About Wellio   

    We’re a growing software FoodTech company with a mission to help you nurture your family with home-cooked meals.  Our AI-based Food Intelligence Platform powers Meal Hero, our native and web app that helps people discover, plan, shop, prepare, and enjoy meals at home with ease. This proprietary technology is based on millions of recipes and thousands of ingredients, and it’s always improving.  

  To achieve our goal we have assembled a team of smart, empirically motivated, disagreeable givers who care about making a difference in the world. We believe that using technology, collaboration, innovation and diversity we can transform the way people eat, cook, and share meals.  Wellio was acquired during the summer of 2018 by the Kraft Heinz Company.
