Esprit takes a nibble of Graze

The first company in the UK to deliver healthy via post has raised £2m of venture capital backing from Octopus Ventures, DFJ Esprit, Arts Alliance and the Accelerator Group.

Launched in January, the service is already handling over 80,000 boxes per month, offering its 15,000 subscribers £2.99 boxes of 150 different foodstuffs, from fresh pineapple to wasabi peanuts and dried berries.

The money raised will be used to expand the product line and enable further growth.

William Reeve, co-founder of LOVEFiLM, has been appointed non-executive chairman of Graze.
