BFKN’s Corporate & Securities Group served as legal counsel to L Catterton, the largest global consumer-focused private equity firm, in connection with the CHF 70 million Series B financing round of Swiss foodtech startup Planted, known for its clean-label biostructured meat. Founded in July 2019, Planted produces delicious meat from alternative proteins such as peas, oats, and sunflowers through its novel biostructuring approach, which combines protein structuring and fermentation.
We are proud to be Europe's fastest growing alternative protein company, with a strong track record, despite our nascency, in established markets like Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and France, and early traction in new markets like the UK and Italy," said Planted Co-Founder Christoph Jenny. “With the additional capital, we will further accelerate our international growth, expand our product range with a line of whole-cut products, and build an additional production site."
BFKN's legal team was led by partners Andrew R. Grossmann and Megan Ratia, with assistance from associate Victoria Rusanova Cordiak.
