Plant-based company Kale United AB (Kale United) today announces its second crowdfunding round has seen strong global demand from investors, with EUR 600,000 raised to date, surpassing the minimum target and approaching the EUR 1 million total target.
Heather Mills and Måns Ullerstam are two prolific investors in the world of vegan business. Ms Mills operates meat and dairy alternative producer VBites, and her lengthy list of achievements in the field includes constant and steady expansion in the UK, the acquisition of a Procter and Gamble factory to create a “plant-based silicone valley”, and collaborations with One Planet Pizza and Goodfellas Pizza in advancing the development of vegan cheeses.
Plant-based company Kale United AB (Kale United) today announces the launch of its second funding round; raising EUR 1 million in capital to invest in or acquire new brands that are supporting global change.

Plant-based company Kale United AB (Kale United) today announces the strengthening of its global advisory board with the addition of two new advisors representing the fast-growing Indian, Middle Eastern and South Korean markets, where interest and demand for plant-based products is increasing exponentially.
The Swedish entrepreneur and investor Måns Ullerstam is a real doer. After realising that there were no investment opportunities that met his ethical and sustainable standards, he quickly created one himself. That is how “Kale Invest” – an investment platform that invests only in plant-based companies – was born. But that’s not all. Ullerstam was recently trained by Al Gore as a Climate Reality Leader in order to further advance his commitment to tackling climate change. That was reason enough for us to interview the young visionary about his investment project and the worldwide development of veganism.
The plant-based products sector is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, which is reflected in numerous forecasts for plant-based products in sectors such as the cosmetics, healthcare and energy industries. This development is also the driver behind the Swedish investment company for sustainable and plant-based funds – Kale Invest – which has announced that it is now open to anyone who wants to invest in sustainable and green technologies.
