Danone Manifesto Ventures invests in organic baby food
Earlier this year, Danone’s venture capital business invested in US organic food producer WhiteWave. This follows on from its earlier investments in French cookie-company Michel et Augustin and the US company called Farmer’s Fridge.
Danone’s Manifesto Ventures recently invested in Yooji, a French start-up that provides organic baby food in frozen portion sizes. Yooji’s products are made with 100% natural ingredients, free from additives and salt. The company sources vegetables from organic farms in the EU. It also uses sustainable packaging. Its baby food is sold in 600 stores across France.
Danone Manifesto Ventures has invested in four companies since its inception last year. It plans to invest up to six or seven start-up companies a year in the future, and aims to be one of the most influential investment funds for healthful eating and drinking.
The company is led by CEO John Foraker, the founder of Annie’s Homegrown. It is also supported by celebrity investor Mark Cuban.
