Brami, a New York-based brand offering Mediterranean lupini bean snacks, closed a $1.5m seed round of funding.
Backers included Lerer Hippeau Ventures, AccelFoods and Enlightened Capital.
The company will use the funds for retail expansion, online and in-store marketing effort and manufacturing capability increase.
Led by founder Aaron Gatti, Brami offers lupini beans – an ancient Mediterranean snack – in packs, with only natural preservatives, in four flavors such as natural spices, sea salt, vinegar and citrus. They are not baked, fried or dried, have only a few calories, fat, carbs and sugar and can be found online and in stores across the country.
