Foraker added that the new funding round highlights the desires and needs for the company’s delicacies.
Expressing the investor perspective, the Co-Founder at CAVU Venture Partner Brett Thomas said that Once Upon a Farm is a revolutionary company in the kids snacking and baby food sector, disrupting two categories that have witnessed stagnation for years and that the company is delighted to invest further in the executive and brand teams through this round.
Now present in more than 11,000 retail stores across North America and possessing a strong eCommerce and direct-to-consumer, Once Upon a Farm is anticipated to double this year based on expanded market and consumer acceptance of its proliferating product portfolio that ranges from snacking from kids to first bites baby food.
