TORONTO, October 13, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Love Good Fats, a groundbreaking pioneer in good fat, low sugar keto snacks, is thrilled to share that it has closed $10.7 million equity financing led by InvestEco Capital Corp. and Export Development Canada that will help accelerate the Company’s already rapid growth in North America.
Founded just 3 short years ago by Suzie Yorke and a core team of passionate supporters, Love Good Fats has been a leading force in the move to reduce sugar and increase good fats as an approach to more informed and balanced nutrition. Love Good Fats offers an alternative to the higher sugar, high simple carbohydrate snacks that have traditionally been the face of convenient snacking. Love Good Fats has inspired millions of people to update the way they snack at home, at work, or at the gym.
Driven to create Love Good Fats after a period of struggling with poor results created by a combination of a low-fat diet while consuming too much sugar found in a variety of claimed “healthy products” such as energy drinks and snack bars, Yorke has grown the company to be a significant presence and influence across North America with distribution in more than 20,000 doors in leading retailers such as Walmart, Whole Foods Market, Sprouts, Kroger, CVS Pharmacy and Costco.
Love Good Fats’ “ridiculously delicious” original truffle style and chewy nutty protein bars, as well as a range of incredibly creamy shakes, boast having only 1-2g of sugar and a hunger-satisfying blend of good fats from nut butters and coconut oil and fiber. Love Good Fats are keto-certified, Non-GMO Project Verified and filled with clean and sustainable ingredients.
“The Love Good Fats team is excited to be joining with these exceptional partners to support our brand and continue expansion across North America. We are delighted to have InvestEco join us and are grateful for the continued support of Export Development Canada,” commented Ms. Yorke, Founder and CEO.
