Yummly.com, a Palo Alto, CA-based recipe search platform, has closed a $6m Series A funding.
The round was led by Physic Ventures, with participation from Unilever Corporate Ventures, Harrison Metal Capital, First Round Capital, Intel Capital, The Harvard Common Press, and angel investors.
The company intends to use the capital to further expand its team (http://www.yummly.com/blog/jobs/), scale its marketing efforts and add new features and functionality to the site.
Launched in April of 2010 by CEO David Feller and Vadim Geshel, Yummly is a food and recipe platform that seeks to understand recipes (ingredients, diets, allergies, nutrition, taste, techniques, etc.) and match them with its users’ tastes.
In conjunction with the funding, Andy Donner of Physic Ventures and Andy Porteous of Unilever will join the company’s board of directors.
