Hungry Harvest raised $7.25 million in Series A funding as the startup delivering produce that would otherwise go to waste seeks to expand its outreach to customers and improve technology, said CEO Evan Lutz.The round was led by Creadev, a Paris-based private equity investment firm controlled by the Mulliez family, which runs a prominent retail network including the Auchan department store. Also participating was Desert Bloom, which invests in efforts to improve the company’s food environment, along with some previous investors.“Creadev is pleased to support Hungry Harvest in its aim to fight against food waste and hunger, providing healthy fresh produce directly from farm to consumer in a convenient and more affordable way,” said Delphine Descamps, Creadev’s managing director for the U.S., in a statement. “This investment fits into Creadev Innovation’s Food & Agriculture strategy of supporting cutting-edge Food & Ag startups in plant-based, aquaculture and food chain segments with a long-term focus.”
