Oscar’s health insurance model includes free virtual care appointments and a program for Medicare-eligible adults.

Imperfect Food’s Series D reaches $110M

Sustainable online grocer Imperfect Foods said Friday that investors added $15 million to its previously announced $95 million in Series D funding, bringing the total round to $110 million.

New investors coming on board this time include Hamilton Lane and Blisce. Insight Partners and Norwest Venture Partners led the initial Series D in January.

San Francisco-based Imperfect Foods cited triple-digit growth between 2019 and 2020, growing its customer base to more than 350,000 customers, and finished out the year with a revenue run rate in excess of $500 million. During that time, it also transitioned to a national full-service grocer.

The company intends to use the funding to double capacity and product assortment in existing facilities and accelerate its private-label program, as well as support shoppers, farmers and partners. With the new funding, Imperfect Foods has raised a total of $229.1 million in funding since it was founded in 2015, according to Crunchbase data.
