In Pennsylvania, Because Animals Inc., a bioscience startup making pet food without animal meat, announced they have closed their seed round of funding with investment from KEEN Growth Capital, Draper Associates and SOSV.

These partners bring years of experience building, launching and supporting world-changing startups and immensely successful CPG brands, and their support will be key to achieving the company’s ultimate goal of delivering cultured meat pet food to the marketplace by 2021.

Because Animals, the Cultured Pet Food Company, launched their first product, a cultured probiotic supplement, in 2018. The all-natural, human-grade supplement, one for cats and one for dogs, contains over 250 million probiotics per gram. The health benefits of this bacterial strain have been reported by over two dozen peer-reviewed research papers, with findings that the probiotic can help support improved digestion and immunity.

Last week, Because Animals announced the pre-sale launch of their certified organic, human-grade dog cookie, Noochies™. Their inaugural dog treat was named after its star cultured ingredient, nutritional yeast, commonly known as Nooch by its human fans. Nooch is well-loved for its rich, cheesy, umami taste and its high content of B vitamins and sustainable, complete protein.

Most significantly, the company’s marquee product, a revolutionary line of cultured meat pet food products, will be released in 2021.
