3 DECEMBER 2019 (SYDNEY): LegalVision has advised v2food on a $35 million Series A funding round – the largest in the growing plant-based meat sector to date. v2food is an Australian plant-based meat startup and backed by the CSIRO and Hungry Jack’s founder, Jack Cowin. The funding will help the company expand R&D efforts, including building a new research and production facility, planning to begin operation in regional Australia.

The LegalVision team was led by Nick Brown (Practice Leader) who was supported by Sophie Mao (Lawyer). LegalVision advised on all legal aspects of the investment, from structuring through to negotiation and closing, as well as assisting with some of v2’s commercial arrangements.

“For a company that only commenced business less than a year ago, v2food is on its way to becoming a major disruptor in the food industry. We were delighted to work with the v2food team to achieve this significant milestone. This deal also showcases LegalVision’s breadth of experience in the venture capital sector,” said Nick Brown

“LegalVision’s experience in capital raising had a big impact on us closing this Series A with confidence,” said Nick Hazell, founder and CEO of v2food.

“We look forward to continuing to work with Nick and Sophie as our company grows and we continue to provide people with plant-based meat that tastes great and is good for the environment.”
