German "unicorn" startup HelloFresh has said plans to go public are back on the menu after postponing an IPO back in 2015.

Nearly two years later and the meal-kit business is seeking to raise up to €300m in a listing on the Frankfurt stock exchange.

The firm, backed by German startup incubator Rocket Internet, has yet to turn a profit, but said today it expects to break even within the next 15 months with improving margins.

The renewed IPO now follows the listing of rival US business Blue Apron, widely seen as one of the worst performing IPOs of the year after listing over the summer.
