Sun Basket, a San Francisco, CA-based organic meal kit service delivering organic and non-GMO ingredients and recipes to customers, raised $9.2M in Series C-2 funding.
The round was led by Unilever Ventures, the venture capital and private equity arm of Unilever, along with Baseline Ventures and Founders Circle Capital. The Series C-2 investment increases Sun Basket’s Series C to $24.2M, as the company raised $15M in Q1.

The company, which has raised $52M in total, will use the new funds to scale nationally.
