NurturMe, an Austin, Texas-based producer of organic quinoa-based baby food and toddler snacks, raised $3.7m in funding.
Advantage Capital Agribusiness Partners, LP, made the investment.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth of its pure organic quinoa products as well as expand adoption of its baby and toddler foods.
Founded by entrepreneurs Caroline Freedman and Lauren de la Rosa, NurturMe offers pure organic quinoa products for babies and toddlers, as well as an innovative family of naturally gluten-free, organic ancient grain-based baby and toddler foods.
A certified B Corporation, the company launched its first line of organic quinoa-focused products in 2014. By end of year, NurturMe baby and toddler foods will be available in more than 5,000 stores nationwide, including major retailers such as Babies“R”Us® and buybuy BABY, as well as Whole Foods Market and Safeway.
In 2015, NurturMe launched NurturNiños, a charitable initiative to support the health, education and other basic needs of children in the farming communities and surrounding rural areas where its organic quinoa is sourced.
