Founded in 2013, Thistle is an early stage food-tech startup empowering our customers to get and stay healthy while improving the sustainability of our food system. We deliver delicious, organic, healthy, plant-forward meals, cold-pressed juices and snacks to customers who want to put their nutrition on auto-pilot.
We don’t want to be just another food delivery startup or meal-kit company. Our focus is on the health and happiness of our customers, and we are revolutionizing how fresh, nutritious, high-quality food is purchased, manufactured, and delivered at scale. Thistle is headquartered in San Francisco and we are backed by some amazing investors in the Bay Area and beyond.
Thistle has recently made the commitment to increase our minimum hourly wages to a rate that we are confident provides sufficient pay to meet basic standards of living. We hope that taking this step will both set an example to other employers, and create a more supportive work environment and long term home for new and existing Thistle employees.
