Sunrise Strategic Partners - a Colorado-based accelerator of emerging brands co-founded by Steve Hughes and Trilantic North America - has made a minority investment in grass-fed organic dairy brand Maple Hill, which makes whole milk yogurts, kefir, cheeses, and milk in New York State. 

“We are committed to growing a community of regenerative grass farmers and demonstrating how 100% grass-fed dairy is the 'new' organic by benefitting the cows, consumers, the farmers and the land,"​ said CEO Tim Joseph, who claims that third-party tests show Maple Hill products contain a more favorable ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids and higher levels of beta-carotene than regular dairy products.

“We look forward to leveraging the Sunrise team's operational expertise and industry relationships to grow the brand."

One of the fastest-growing dairy brands in the natural channel, Maple Hill ​products are now available in 6,000+ retailers across the US, from Whole Foods, Natural Grocers and Sprouts to select Kroger banners, as well as thousands of independent grocers and specialty retailers, said Sunrise co-founder and CEO Steve Hughes.  

This marks the fifth investment for Boulder-based Sunrise,​ which provides growth capital and expertise to early stage health and wellness brands.
