It launched its first product, Stockeld Chunk – a feta style cheese based on peas and fava beans – in May 2021 and the new funding will be invested in product development as well as expanding the brand’s geographic footprint. In 2022, it will also relocate to a state-of-the-art pilot production plant in Stockholm.
