The Investment

The rising consciousness about what we feed ourselves is also translating to our pets, via the trend of humanization of pets, with owners wanting to ensure that their pet has the best possible nutrition.

Dog food is a recurring, bulky and inconvenient purchase, dominated by predominantly offline brands that fail to connect with their customers.

Kevin and David – two London-based former Goldman traders with a passion for dogs – set out to change the petcare market as we know it. Delivering delicious and healthy meals to dogs through a subscription model, Butternut Box solves the need for a more convenient and nutritious solution. Every meal is pre-portioned to suit each dog’s individual needs, with an obsession for excellent customer experience offering peace of mind to pet owners.

This round comes less than 12 months after we co-led the Series B alongside Five Seasons, and, having worked closely with the team, we truly believe this is a testament to the constant focus of David and Kevin on two crucial parts of the business: Customers and Culture. Here, we wanted to take a step back to reflect on how the company has done so far and share some key insights from their journey in scaling from Series A to Series C.
