Grainful, an Ithaca, New York-based frozen food and meal kit company, raised $3.3m in funding.
Backers included Advantage Capital and Rand Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to grow operations and expand its product offerings.
Led by Jan Pajerski, co- founder and president, Grainful launched around a line of savory oat-based frozen entrees including Vegetarian Chili, Unstuffed Pepper, Porcini Mushroom Chicken, and Tuscan Bean & Kale among others. In 2016, the company added a shelf-stable meal kit product line for the speed-scratch market (30 minutes or less).
Products are available online at the Grainful online store and Amazon.com, as well as at leading retailers across the nation.
