WAYNESBORO, Ga. – Hart Dairy, the ethically driven, largest single-source producer of pasture-raised and grass-fed 365 days per year milk in North America, announces it has successfully raised a $20 million investment to advance the long-term trajectory of the company. The funding round includes a $13 million lead investment by KAL Investment Group to cultivate the continued growth of the premium dairy producer. Hart Dairy will utilize the capital to further expand its better-for-you dairy products through farm acquisitions and strategic marketing plans to drive sales, while nurturing the dairy’s humane treatment of animals, better nutrition and regenerative farming practices.
“I am thrilled we have raised in excess of $20 million in funding,” said Tim Connell, chief executive officer for Hart Dairy. “These funds allow us to provide more marketing support as we drive sales velocity on a per-store basis and allow us to purchase farms as part of our farm roll-up strategy. I am very excited about Hart Dairy’s future as we continue to accelerate our business plans and product innovation throughout the U.S. dairy landscape.”
This latest announcement follows Hart Dairy’s recent addition of two new members to its executive team, with Olga Longan serving as the chief finance officer and George Konovalov as the vice president of sales, who bring a collective 65 years of dairy industry experience to the company.
