The company is poised to launch its first product later this month – co-founder and CEO Ben Berman has been quiet about what it will be – thanks in part to an $8.5 million seed round led by Lowercarbon Capital with input from Maveron, Valor Siren. Ventures, Simple Food Ventures, SV Angel and a group of angels including Ron Conway, Ryan Tedder and Max Mullen. The new round gives Tomorrow Farms $10.5 million in total funding.

Berman founded Tomorrow Farms about a year ago after a career in the food industry. At 18, he had a food truck called Mainely Burgers, which grew into three trucks and 16 employees. From there, he launched Good Pizza from his apartment, and during the global pandemic, dropped pizza out of people’s windows to raise money for local charities. This business is now part of Philabundance, a famine relief organization in Philadelphia.

With a lot of investment funds invested in the future of food companies, Tomorrow Farms. which was established in the SALT Venture Fund in early 2021, is intended to be the foremost partner for many of these food science companies developing new products and brands.

“We saw this wave of food, precision fermentation and cultured meat technology, but they needed help commercializing,” Berman told TechCrunch. “We do all the commercialization, go-to-market, creative and branding for them. We are also looking into what resonates with customers and what the next generation of food should look like, and find companies that will make these products.”

As mentioned, Tomorrow Farms is preparing to launch its first product and has worked with an ingredient company to create a product based on that company’s recipe.

The new funding went towards launching the product and planning for the second product. This will entail growing the team, building relationships with retailers and finding new food technology partners. Berman said the company is already working with several ingredient companies, with more being added every day.

“There is so much activity in this space and it is helping us build the future of our food systems,” he added. “We are opportunistic, with all this activity we find the right products. We’re not trying to make fancy products, so we spend time and money on the brands we want to launch.”
