Kuli Kuli, a US-based manufacturer and distributor of moringa-based products, has raised US$4.25 million from multiple investors in a Series A funding round.
Founded in 2011, Kuli Kuli is a leading moringa brand in the U.S. It sells high quality and nutritious moringa, which provides a good source of iron, calcium, vitamins, and antioxidants.
Its delicious Moringa Superfood Bars, Pure Moringa Powder, Energizing Moringa Herbal Tea, and Moringa Green Energy shots make it easy for Americans to get their greens on the go.
The startup sources moringa from women’s cooperatives across West Africa, South America and the Caribbean. It provides fair, sustainable wages to these women and farmers, and also helps to plant moringa trees.
Kuli Kuli will use the fresh funds to expand its distribution, bringing its products to conventional retailers in the States, and ultimately to more homes.
“We are excited to partner with eighteen94 capital and Kellogg, and we’re thrilled that they see the potential in our company and in moringa as a next-generation superfood,” said Lisa Curtis, Kuli Kuli Founder and CEO.
She added, “We want to create a world where everyone has access to nutritious sources of food. Through this relationship, Kuli Kuli will benefit from Kellogg’s resources and global presence, both of which will help us achieve our goals.”
Joining eighteen94 capital, Kellogg Company’s venture capital fund, in the funding round are InvestEco and S2G Ventures.
