FOOD FOR A NU WORLD
Start-up the nu company has closed a bridge financing round of over 3.7 million euros. The largest amount is contributed by Impact Investor ForestFinance, one of the leading providers of direct forest investments in Europe.
MRC is also one of the investors – and we are very proud to be able to support this great company.
The green food startup the nu company from Leipzig challenges the food industry and wants to change it sustainably. Founded in 2016 by three industrial engineers, the “purpose-driven” company has made healthy, plastic-free and climate-positive snacks and shows that positive business is no longer a utopia. Driven by its corporate DNA “food for a nu world”, the startup is rethinking food without compromise: all products are of natural origin in organic quality, vegan, without refined sugar and wrapped in specially developed home-compostable cellulose packaging. On its climate-positive mission, the nu company supports reforestation projects in collaboration with the Eden Projects organization by planting a tree for every product sold.
