13 May 2021, London, UK: ADM Capital Europe LLP, the London-based private equity advisory firm, is pleased to announce that the Cibus Enterprise Fund (‘Cibus’) has invested into the personalised health and wellness company Rem3dy Health Limited, (‘Remedy Health’).
Remedy Health was formed in May 2019 and raised their USD 2.75 million seed round by the end of 2019, the largest seed round ever raised by a female founder in the United Kingdom. The company has now raised USD 11 million in Series A funding after seeing their revenues grow by more than 600% over the past year. The business develops patented 3D printing technologies which it uses to enable the production of personalised health and wellness solutions.
Melissa Snover, CEO of Remedy Health, said, “There has been a huge rise in the number of personalised nutrition products launched over the past few years, with the global industry predicted to go from $3.7 billion in 2019 to over $16 billion in 2027. Our goal at Remedy is to offer truly personalised nutrition in a single daily format; we utilise our patented 3D printing technology to achieve this, something no one else in the world can do. We provide the highest quality active ingredients available to support every individual’s specific needs and goals.”
The company is most well-known for its personalised gummy vitamin brand, Nourished, which launched in January 2020. The gummy form of supplements is more enjoyable to consume and also offers higher absorption rates for some of the Company’s ingredients compared to traditional pills. Nourished is a personalised gummy vitamin and is fast becoming a market leader in the field of personalised nutrition, with just 1% of the market currently offering personalised nutrition models. Consumers complete an online questionnaire which gives them a recommendation of the best seven active ingredients to optimise their lifestyle and goals. Their selection is then 3D printed on demand, offering total customisation and vastly improved efficacy at commercial scale.
The team behind Nourished has future plans to further disrupt the health industry with personalised protein bars and the recent launch of Nourished Kids – the world’s first personalised gummy vitamins, for kids.
The Remedy Health team has outlined an ambitious roadmap for 2021, targeting 30,000 monthly customers and over USD 10m in sales, as well as expanding into curative health solutions. Snover plans on using the funds to further expand the Nourished portfolio, adding lines for Kids and Personalised Protein Bars to the range this year. She is also considering production expansion to the U.S.
Other investors participating in the round include ADM Ventures, the corporate venture capital arm of Archer-Daniels-Midland, Apater Capital and Henkel X.
Commenting, Alastair Cooper, Head of Venture Investing at ADM Capital Europe said: “Remedy Health, with the use of their 3D printed technology, has the ability to scale high quality nutritional products that are truly unique. In a short space of time the Remedy Health team have managed to build the Nourished brand both in the US and UK markets. We’re delighted to partner with Melissa and her team to assist in the next phase of the company’s growth.”

About the Cibus Fund and the Cibus Enterprise Fund
The Cibus Fund focusses on mid-market investment opportunities in sustainable food processing and production companies, primarily in North America, Europe and Australasia with a ten percent allocation to early stage high growth agritech investments. The Cibus Enterprise Fund has a global mandate to invest in late-stage venture companies disrupting the agritech sector. Both Funds take advantage of the significant investment opportunities presented by global demographic changes, shifting trade and consumption patterns and the inability of the world’s fastest growing economies to meet rapidly increasing regional demand for high-value foods driven by burgeoning middle classes. In addition, the Cibus Funds target companies with strong management teams that are active in one or more stages of high-value food chains and looks for companies that are established category champions with a demonstrable technological advantage. Investments are evaluated on their environmental sustainability as a key determinant of value creation.
In October 2018, The Cibus Fund was the first fund to be given ‘Guernsey Green Fund’ status by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission. The Guernsey Financial Services Commission launched the Guernsey Green Fund in July 2018 and it is only awarded to those funds which meet strict eligibility criteria designed to reassure investors that funds are invested in line with appropriate environmental standards. Cibus has been granted this status in recognition of the fact it regards environmental sustainability as a key determinant of value creation.
