RAW Pressery

RAW Pressery, India’s first and largest clean-label beverage company received Series C funding worth $6 million from three equal partners – Sequoia India, Saama Capital and DSG Consumer Partners. This was a follow-up to the first round that invited $4.5 million from Sequoia India in February 2016. The company looks to utilize the said funds to expand its manufacturing capacity and distribution reach for new product launches. The funds will also be used for capital expenditure in the company’s cold chain logistics infrastructure as well as for other operating expenses such as expanding headcount and for marketing. Raw Pressery is India’s first and largest clean label beverage company. This means all RAW products are 100% natural, free of added sugar and preservatives with easily identifiable ingredients and sustainable practices for procurement, production and waste management. Raw Pressery is growing faster than any other beverage brand in the segment as it services the market demand with clear focus on innovation and quality. On the product side, the company has, in the last 12 months, grown beyond juices to selling smoothies, almond milk and coconut water. It recently started selling ready-to-consume soup. RAW Pressery also plans to add new products in each of the five categories that it is in currently— juices, soups, smoothies, nut milk and hydration (coconut water, lemonade). The company also plans to launch dairy products.
