“This significant influx of new capital is a clear validation of how we see free-range, grass-fed milk emerging in America,” said Hart Dairy Chief Executive Officer Tim Connell. “With consumers’ paradigm shift toward better-for-you products and our recent Certified Humane® certification for the farms we care for most, we believe we are on the right trajectory. Having a world-class organization such as Alium Capital in our corner is a huge endorsement for Hart Dairy as we continue to grow and pioneer the 100% free-range, grass-fed movement for our cherished consumers.”

“We were very impressed with Hart Dairy’s exceptional operation, along with their ability to recognize and fill this significant gap in the dairy market,” said Alium Director Jason Rich. “We were also attracted by the team’s ability to scale quickly and, most importantly, they have the expert management team in place to execute appropriately to achieve success in this category.”

This announcement is on the heels of Hart Dairy’s recent news that it was named as the first and only pasteurized dairy cow operation in America to earn the Certified Humane® designation from Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC), which is considered the most stringent animal welfare standard globally. HFAC is the leading international nonprofit certification program whose mission is to improve the lives of farm animals and drive consumer demand for kinder and more responsible farm animal practices.
