We continue to acquire subscribers at attractive unit economics, we have increased average order volumes by expanding our offering to our customers and revenue from our newly acquired ready-to-heat business, Chefgood, further drives growth of our Australian segment.

While the business is growing healthily, we were also able to keep margins stable year-over-year,
offsetting operational headwinds and inflation.
