Private investors Ian West, who had already invested in Naked Wines and Pact Coffee, and Andrea Raffel, a Vice Chairman at Rothschild, Deputy Chair at Cranfield University and Board member of the Imperial College NHS trust, made the investment. Ian West joined the Board.
The company intends to use the funds to automate operations and further improve the in-house tech capabilities.
