NEW YORK (Reuters) – Options contracts on Blue Apron Holdings Inc <APRN.N>, the first U.S. meal-kit company to go public, will debut on CBOE Holdings Inc’s <CBOE.O> exchanges on Monday, a CBOE spokeswoman said on Thursday.

The listing of the options contracts is subject to the stock meeting CBOE’s criteria for new listings, the spokeswoman said. Typically, other U.S. options exchanges would also offer these options at the same time.

Blue Apron shares, which started trading on June 29 at $10, have slipped as investors have been fretting about the prospects of the meal-kit industry. The shares closed down 8.8 percent at $8.06 on Thursday.
