Two distinct passions came together in spring 2020 to form the foundation of Gorillas. One is a deep admiration of service culture, the other a love for cycling. Kağan Sümer, Founder and CEO, envisioned a world where grocery shopping would be radically faster and far more convenient, and so Gorillas was born.
Gorillas is an idea.
While we're proud to share our name with the world's largest living primates, we prefer to think of Gorillas as less of a name and more of a concept. In the context of the grocery industry, our name represents a bold and unconventional way of doing things. It is an embrace of new ideas, and a challenging of the status quo.
At the heart of gorillas are humans. More than 12,000 of them globally. We come from all different backgrounds and walks of life, and find ourselves united through four core values: Be Authentic, Make Bold Decisions, Own Change, and Always Be Riding.

With delivery on demand, we're changing how people do groceries. By enabling immediate access to essential needs, Gorillas is leading the change for more conscious and sustainable consumption.
Through our vertically integrated supply chain we aim to minimize food waste on every stop along the way. We avoid packaging wherever possible and encourage our suppliers to do the same. And through delivery on our e-bikes, we reduce traffic and emissions in the cities we operate in.
Our warehouses harness the power of data to predict how much stock they will need each day, allowing us to minimize the amount of food that goes to waste. If food is close to its expiry date, that's when our global partnership with Too Good To Go
Since the beginning of the partnership with Too Good to Go, we've already saved more than 150,000 bags worth of produce; that amounts to over 100 tons of food! We sell surprise bags through Too Good to Go, with each bag equalling one meal worth of food saved. On average a mystery bag contains 1kg of food, which saves 2.5kg of CO2. That means we've saved 250,000kg of CO2 through our partnership.
