PeachDish is now the first meal kit service to accept Bitcoin February 23, 2015 For Immediate Release

ATLANTA, GA—P​eachDish, the national meal kit service delivering the freshest ingredients and chef­developed, Southern­inspired recipes, is partnering with BitPay, the international electronic payment processing system for the Bitcoin currency. The partnership makes PeachDish the first meal kit delivery service to accept bitcoins, the peer­to­peer digital currency. “There’s a strong BitPay community out there, and we’re eager to make PeachDish available to them,” says PeachDish President Judith Winfrey. “We’re always delighted about the opportunity to support and partner with another disruptive Atlanta­based business in the process.”

“PeachDish is bringing innovation to the experience of creating good meals,” says BitPay’s communications manager Julia Patterson. “We are excited to be equipping the company with an innovative payment method with our bitcoin processing.” To launch the partnership, PeachDish is sponsoring a social media contest encouraging use of the hashtag #btcpeach, rewarding users with bitcoins through the ChangeTip app, which allows for transfer of bitcoins through social media. Users of #btcpeach will also be rewarded with chances to win PeachDish boxes. PeachDish is proud to work with BitPay—another Atlanta­based start­up—to make its responsibly sourced, high­quality food from purveyors like Belle Chevre, the acclaimed cheese maker from Alabama, and White Oak Pastures, Georgia’s largest organic farm, accessible to Bitcoin users. Other recent partnerships include PeachDish delivery via Uber.
