Direct to consumer babyfood brand Little Spoon raises $7m
When parents sign up for Little Spoon – which has just shipped its millionth meal - they receive recommended meal plans personalized to their child’s needs, but also have the option to customize.
The food - which is made in southern California and delivered chilled - is treated using high pressure processing (HPP) and arrives in a proprietary, recyclable container with a spoon. Each delivery box comes with a layer of insulation and ice packs designed to keep the food cold for up to four days in transit.
Founded by a team of food and consumer product executives, Lisa Barnett, Michelle Muller, Ben Lewis, and Angela Vranich, Little Spoon launched at the end of 2017 and offers three meal plans delivered in two week bundless: one meal per day, two meals per day, or three meals per day.
All of its products are free of the big eight allergens and are shipped nationwide within the continental United States.
