Japanese recipe site Cookpad expands abroad with acquisition of Allthecooks and Mis Recetas

Cookpad, Japan’s top recipe website, is making an aggressive international push by acquiring Spain’s Mis Recetas and an equity interest in social cooking app Allthecooks. The move follows the launch of Cookpad’s English site earlier this year.

Mis Recetas boasts roughly 6 million monthly users. Allthecooks, which will become a sub-subsidiary of Cookpad, has picked up 1 million users since launching last December.
