BROOKLYN, NY. — Plant-based meals startup Mosaic Foods has raised $6 million in a seed round led by Gather Ventures with participation from Greycroft and Alleycorp.
Founded in 2019, Mosaic Foods produces and ships a selection of frozen vegetable bowls, oat bowls, soups and larger-format family meals to consumers in select markets. Its recently launched Mosaic+ features prepared meals developed by top New York City chefs and restaurants. The company plans to use the proceeds from the funding round to scale its core direct-to-consumer business, develop new products and expand into offline channels.
“At Mosaic, our mission is simple: we want to help put good food on every table,” said Matt Davis, chief executive officer and co-founder of Mosaic Foods. “Many people want to eat more balanced diets but obstacles like cost, taste, time, and accessibility often prove insurmountable. We started Mosaic to make plant-based eating as easy as takeout and as affordable as home cooking. Over the last two years, we’ve brought innovative meals to market and scaled our business considerably. Today, we’re thrilled to welcome new financial partners into our mission and work together to create more delicious opportunities for consumers to embrace plant-based eating through frozen food.”
Mosaic Foods operates a 16,000-square-foot kitchen in New Jersey and employs 40 team members.“Mosaic Foods is a clear leader in the fast-growing, plant-based foods industry,” said Adam Slutsky, founder and partner of Gather Ventures. “I’ve been familiar with the brand since its launch in 2019 and am continually impressed with its approach to the market and growth. As an advocate for the power of plant-based eating, I appreciate how Mosaic enables consumers to access healthy foods through easy-to-prepare frozen meals that feature restaurant-grade quality flavors and ingredients. Gather Ventures is thrilled to join Mosaic and support the company as it continues to innovate and thrive within the industry.”
