TrusTrace closes $6m Series A investment round to help create more sustainable supply chains for global brands
TrusTrace, a Stockholm-based software company with a platform for supply chain transparency and product traceability within the fashion, food and retail industries, has announced a $6m growth investment led by Industrifonden and Fairpoint Capital, together with previous investors BackingMinds, and with support from Fashion for Good.
The new capital will be used to further accelerate global expansion, expand product development, and strengthen the team to continue bringing supply chain transparency to brands who want to know what they sell, and to consumers who care about what they buy.
Founded in 2016, TrusTrace is a SaaS provider that empowers fashion, food and retail brands to fully understand and take responsibility for the social and environmental impact of their supply chains. The company currently has a portfolio of more than 40 customers, including well-known brand and sustainability leaders like Fjällräven, Filippa K, Zalando, Decathlon and Coop.
“TrusTrace enables product-level traceability and supply chain transparency to drive better, more sustainably-conscious and socially-responsible sourcing decisions,” said Shameek Ghosh, CEO and Co-Founder of TrusTrace, and a veteran within the global software industry from companies like HCL. “With this latest funding round, we will continue leveraging cutting-edge technology and the best minds in the industry to achieve positive, restorative change for people and the planet.”
Increasing pressure from international regulations, investor scrutiny and consumer demand is accelerating the need for green tech and sustainability solutions – with the market expected to reach $58bn by 2027.
Hadar Cars, Investment Director at Fairpoint Capital said: “We have been truly impressed by TrusTrace‘s impact in the fast-growing market for supply chain transparency. Consumers, businesses and regulators alike are demanding solutions for sustainable practices, which have evolved from a ‘nice-to-have’ to a ‘must-have’ for leading companies. With strong customer traction, an enterprise-scale solution, and a world-class team, we are confident that TrusTrace will be a category leader in its market.”
