Osso Good, one of the fastest growing brands in the premium bone broth category, announced an investment by Venice Brands, a Los Angeles-based investment firm that provides strategic capital to emerging consumer brands, with a focus on better-for-you food & beverage companies.
The Venice Brands investment will enable Osso Good to expand production capacity, further build out the team, grow its distribution footprint, and invest in new products.
Founded by Meredith Cochran, Jazz Hilmer, and Toran Hilmer, Osso Good is known for its delicious flavor profiles and unparalleled ingredient quality. The founders take great pride in sourcing their ingredients, promising that they will always be responsibly raised, non-GMO, hormone-free and organic. They work closely with a group of small family farms in Northern California and Oregon that raise their animals in conditions that are beyond organic. Osso Good’s mission is to provide the most nourishing bone broth available on the market, with flavor profiles that are also the best that you’ve ever tasted.
“After spending considerable time surveying the bone broth category, we determined that Osso Good has truly differentiated ingredient quality and flavor profiles. The team spends significant time sourcing only the best ingredients from a heavily curated group of farmers, and it manufactures 100% of its broth via a proprietary process in its own facilities. The founders are extremely focused on the company’s mission and culture, which resonates with employees and customers. We are excited to partner with Meredith, Jazz and Toran to build upon their success to date and to help drive the next chapter of rapid growth,” says Venice Brands Founder and CEO Greg Willsey.
