Wicked Kitchen, a UK born plant-based food brand company, raised $14M in Series A funding.

The round was led by Unovis Asset Management with participation from Thailand-based NRF Nove Foods.

The company intends to use the funds to expand in the U.S.

Co-founded by world renowned chefs and brothers Derek and Chad Sarno and led by CEO Pete Speranza, Wicked Kitchen provides a chef-driven range of plant-based foods that unleash the power of vegetables. Derek and Chad Sarno created Wicked Kitchen and with it, a range of flavor-forward vegan products, first launched in January 2018 in the U.K. in collaboration with Tesco, one of the largest food retailers in the world. Following success in the U.K., the pro-plant brothers are now bringing the Wicked Kitchen product line home to the American audience keen to incorporate more plants into their diet. In the USA, the company is based in Minneapolis.
