Cleveland Kitchen, a fermented foods brand, has closed $19M of Series A funding led by Amberstone, with participation from Clover Vitality.

The funds will accelerate Cleveland Kitchen’s growth in the fresh-fermented foods category.

“Cleveland Kitchen has redefined the fresh-fermented food space. Drew and his team have built a platform of branded products that have already demonstrated significant appeal to a broad cross-section of the country, illustrated by their category-leading velocities in a number of the nation’s largest retailers. We’re excited to be part of the journey as they continue to lead product innovation in one of the most interesting categories we’ve seen,” said James Graham, partner at Amberstone.
