Nutrition Capital Network facilitates financing and asset sales for growing companies and introduces investors to the next generation of successful brands & technology in the nutrition and health & wellness industries. Below is news from August.

EcoScraps (Salt Lake City, Utah), a provider of organic, chemical- and manure-free lawn and garden products, has received $1.5 million in series A venture financing. The round was led by KickStart; other investors included DBL Investors and Peterson Ventures. Funding will be used to expand into new markets, develop products, and attract talent. EcoScraps diverts produce waste from local grocery stores and restaurants and turns it into compost and other lawn and garden products. The products contain twice the amount of essential soil nutrients compared to typical manure- and chemical-based soil products on the market, the company said. Founded two years ago, EcoScraps currently sells its organic compost in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah. Americans generate more than 30 million tons of food waste each year, the company noted.
