Outstanding Foods has announced that it has raised $5M in a funding round led by SternAegis Ventures. The company has also welcomed Los Angeles Laker, JaVale McGee, who joins the impressive line-up of celebrity investors along with Snoop Dogg, Rob Dyrdek, Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy) and Daniella Monet.
The company informs us it is poised for growth thanks to the successful launch of PigOut Pigless Pork Rinds earlier this year and is now preparing to roll out new products with the latest funding round. This additional capital will facilitate faster R&D, nationwide marketing, retail expansion, and team development.
Snacks suitable for athletes are limited so it is perhaps unsurprising that those interested in fitness are drawn to the brand. Mr McGee stated “PigOut Rinds are one of the best snacks I’ve tried. You’d never know they’re plant-based and packed with clean protein to keep you fuelled. I’m excited to join their team.”
Bill Glaser, CEO and co-founder of Outstanding Foods further commented: “This funding provides us with the opportunity to reach more consumers and give them more ways to snack on great-tasting, healthy, plant-based snacks. Consumers have been freaking out over our PigOut Pigless Pork Rinds that are Addictively Delicious and have the same protein content as beef. Soon they’ll be able to experience other Outstanding snacks that we feel will be game-changers!”
