Investors pour capital on a maker of plant-based dressings, marinades, dips and condiments led by Kristi Knowles. Forage Capital Partners, Export Development Canada and return investor Whitecap Venture Partners put $6.1 million in Series A funding into Mother Raw. Originally known as RawFoodz, the company was relaunched last year after being reformulated to focus more broadly on healthy eaters and was renamed. Kristi became CEO after RawFoodz founder Michelle Kopman died in 2018. The company’s products are found in some 3,700 stores, including Target, Walmart Canada and Whole Foods. https://motherraw.com/.
