Clean Crop Technologies has raised $6 million in a Series A funding round led by ReGen Ventures, Trailhead Capital and the MassMutual Catalyst Fund.
The round also included participation from existing and new investors, including Prime Impact Fund, Innova Memphis, Active Impact and DC Thomson Capital, among others.
Founded in 2019, Clean Crop uses electricity to decarbonise the way food is grown. The company has developed a high voltage catalyst technology that can boost yields, improve food safety and reduce food waste in a wide range of food categories, including nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables, meats and seafood.
Dan Fitzgerald, managing partner at ReGen Ventures, said: “Clean Crop has a unique opportunity to catalyse a paradigm shift by deploying its technology that massively reduces waste, dramatically improves food safety while preserving the fundamental goodness of produce”.
Clean Crop plans to use the funds to continue scaling and commercialising its core technology across the supply chain.
