Full Harvest, a San Francisco, CA—based marketplace for excess produce that would otherwise go to waste, closed an $8.5m Series A financing.
The round was led by Spark Capital with participation from new investors Cultivian Sandbox Ventures, Rent the Runway Founder Jenny Fleiss, Jon Scherr (CircleUp) and Adam Zeplain of Mark.vc, as well as previous investors, including Seed lead Wireframe Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to further scale its technology platform, expand its U.S. footprint and triple the size of its technology, sales and operations teams.
Led by Christine Moseley, founder and CEO, Full Harvest provides a B2B produce marketplace that allows growers to get the most out of a harvest and food companies save money by bringing farm excess that would otherwise go to waste to market.
The company has already enabled large farms to sell and deliver almost seven million pounds of produce.
