Pink Albatross has launched its first crowd equity round with which it hopes to raise 250,000 euros with the aim of continuing to expand its production and expand into new international markets.
The healthy ice cream company Pink albatross continues to advance its growth objectives. After the investment round opened last summer with the support of the Tech Transfer Agrifood fund and previous angel investors who have reinvested in the company, now launches its first round of crowd equity.
On this occasion, the objective is to raise 250,000 euros to be used for the development of international markets, especially French and German, which are added to the Portuguese and Filipino in which the company already has a presence.
Along with this international expansion, Pink Albatross’s strategy also involves continuing to evolve in the development of new products, both in terms of flavors and formats, always faithful to its philosophy of tasty ice creams with vegetable and natural ingredients.
The crowd equity round is carried out through the Crowdcube platform which can be accessed through this website where potential investors have at their disposal information on the results and objectives of the company.
In them you can see how, after two years in the market, in 2021 Pink Albatross has experienced remarkable growth with an increase in its turnover of 400%. Likewise, it also multiplied its distribution thanks to the presence in retail chains and restaurants such as Ametller Origen, Sánchez Romero, Spar, La Sirena, Nikki Beach, as well as supermarkets such as El Corte Inglés in Portugal, among others.
The expansion of the Pink Albatross philosophy
With the new round of open financing, the firm seeks to continue consolidating this growth and open the company to its consumers, fans and clients, being able to invest in a young company, but with growth in the ice cream market valued at 21,000 million euros, only in Europe.
In this market, Pink Albatross has an important position within the ice cream segment ‘plant-based’, that is, of vegetable origin and avoiding industrial ice creams, using only natural ingredients, without artificial flavors or aromas. This segment is experiencing faster growth than the general ice cream category in Europe and is expected to reach € 500 million in 2026.
This opens up enormous prospects for the company that seeks to redefine people’s relationship with food with a tastier and cleaner ice cream offering, without artificial ingredients, and more respectful of animals and the environment. With this, the philosophy of Pink Albatross, based on the trends of clean label, sustainability and products ‘plant-based’, seeks to continue making its way and grow by bringing its proposal of ice creams suitable for all tastes and dietary restrictions to a wider market.
