Finnish company Solar Foods secures €8 million in funding. The remarkable success of this funding round underlines the high level of trust and confidence the investor community has placed in the company’s team and vision.
Conducted through the Finnish investment organiser Springvest Oyj, Solar Foods’ funding round stands as the biggest to date on Springvest’s platform.
Registration was slated to run until November 10, but overwhelming demand from investors meant the funding round reached capacity almost two weeks ahead of schedule and was oversubscribed.
Pasi Vainikka, CEO and co-founder of Solar Foods said, “We are incredibly thankful for the trust and confidence the investor community has shown in Solar Foods. This funding is more than a financial boost: it’s a mark of confidence in the future of sustainable food solutions that Solar Foods represents. We are excited to channel these resources into our new factory and amplify our impact in the food industry,”.
The capital raised will be allocated towards ramping up production at the Solar Foods´ inaugural commercial-scale production facility, Factory 01, as well as utilising new production organisms and commercialising Solein® in food products.
