Blue Stripes


Novel Ingredients | United States | Series B | 2024

Blue Stripes aims at minimizing food waste and enhancing the livelihoods and revenues of farmers in the cocoa industry by upcycling the whole cacao fruit, including the shell, pulp and beans, creating an opportunity for a wide variety of pioneering product lines. Their product offerings, currently available under the Blue Stripes brand in the United States, include cacao water, chocolate bars, dried fruit, beans, granola, and trail mix. Each product is created using different components of the cacao fruit.

Praesidium participated in the 2024 Series B round and will support Blue Stripes as it continues to expand within the chocolate market.
