Las Vegas, NV—Sophie’s Kitchen Inc. has secured a $5.6 million investment that was led by Billy Goat Brands Ltd., a publicly-listed venture capital platform with a focus on the blue economy. The funding will support the growth of the Sophie’s Kitchen brand, product innovation, and the Company’s overall mission of making a positive difference globally.
“We at Sophie’s Kitchen believe in the same mission—to save lives and protect the planet, one meal at a time,” said Sophie’s Kitchen CEO, Dr. Miles Woodruff. “The best way to achieve this goal is to create plant-based foods craved by vegans and meat-lovers alike, while making our products accessible to consumers so they can also join our mission for change.”
Sophie’s Kitchen has been creating seafood alternatives since 2010, while working to raise awareness about the destruction of ocean ecosystems and the wildlife within them.
Billy Goat Brands is focused on maximizing its exposure to high-growth companies with environmental, social, and governance-based values in key industries including plant-based proteins.
“Sophie’s Kitchen is changing the game in plant-based foods, and we couldn’t be more excited to help them embark on their next chapter of growth,” said Tony Harris, Chair and CEO of Billy Goat Brands, in the press release. “We believe in Sophie’s Kitchen’s mission of not just making plant-based products accessible to everyone, but by providing elevated transparency, cleaner ingredients, and unrivaled taste to their brand loyalists and future consumers.”
