The MBOLD coalition has picked a new crop of Minnesota ag companies for the 2022 Bold Growth Program.
The four Minnesota-based companies are (with descriptions from MBOLD):
- Local Crate, a restaurant quality meal solutions company with locally sourced food and a focus on environmental sustainability.
- Step One Foods, developer of a nutrition based, scientific approach to heart health that helps support healthy cholesterol levels naturally through its small meals and snacks.
- Hidrate Spark, a developer of a smart water bottle system that helps people develop healthy hydration habits by tracking water intake and progress through a smart phone app.
- Bizzy Coffee, back for a second year in the Bold Growth program, is an organic, sustainably produced cold brew coffee company, and is Amazon’s No. 1 selling cold brew.
Designed to accelerate the success of high-growth food and ag companies, the Bold Growth program gives its participating companies access to a network of mentor businesses including General Mills, Cargill, Target, Land O' Lakes, Schwan's Co. and others. Over the course of the 12-18 month program, MBOLD will work with the cohort companies to, "identify each company’s unique needs, design an engagement plan to support those needs, and secure on-going advisory support from the right experts within MBOLD’s network."
