Poland’s SUPERSONIC Food raises €1.5M in a round led by YouNick Mint

Warsaw-based foodtech startup SUPERSONIC Food has raised about €1.5 million (PLN 7 million) in an investment round led by the YouNick Mint fund. The round was also joined by several business angels and the KnowledgeHub Starter fund, MamStartup reports.

  • Founded in 2020 by Chris Kozak, Matthew Zalubski, and Tom Teresak, SUPERSONIC offers a brand of products that replace traditional meals and beverages with those that can be prepared quickly. The products are of plant origin created by scientists, nutritionists, and biotechnologists. According to the company, they can provide full nutritional value, build immunity, and delay the aging process.

“From the very beginning, we understood each other well with the founders and we were sure about the vision of the company’s further development. What made us believe that it is worth investing in SUPERSONIC Food is not only a prospective and dynamically growing market or a well-constructed product portfolio, but rather the energy and determination of the team, combined with extensive experience in the development of previous businesses,”

Aleksander Kłósek, managing partner of YouNick Mint, comments.
  • The YouNick Mint fund became the lead backer for the company. It is a Polish venture capital fund focused on projects which offer global potential at their seed and further development stages. The fund mainly supports industry 4.0, healthcare, and digital healthcare startups.
  • KnowledgeHub Starter, the Polish initial-stage venture capital fund, supported the round together with several angels. Among them there were business angels from Germany, Switzerland, Scotland, the Czech Republic, and Poland.
  • SUPERSONICS Food intends to allocate fresh funds to the development of its product portfolio, marketing, and building its position in retail and e-commerce channels.
