YoLa Fresh, a Moroccan agritech business establishing a transparent and sustainable fresh food supply network, announced a $7 million pre-Series A fundraising round. Al Mada Ventures brought in Algebra Ventures, E3 Capital, Janngo Capital, and FMO, the Dutch entrepreneurial development bank.

It’s revolutionary platform links farmers to merchants and food service organisations. Transparency and waste reduction are achieved by tracking produce from farm to retail using cutting-edge technology. This breakthrough technique boosts farmer and retailer profits, reduces food waste, and gives consumers fresher, cheaper options.

“We have achieved remarkable traction and demonstrated product-market fit in less than 1 year, reinforcing the effectiveness of our innovative business model, which this funding round recognizes and supports,” said Youssef Mamou, co-CEO of YoLa Fresh. “With this funding, we’ll expand our logistics network, bolster our technology, and empower more farmers to deliver high-quality produce directly to consumers,” said Larbi Alaoui Belrhiti, co-CEO of YoLa Fresh.

Entrepreneurs Larbi Alaoui Belrhiti and Youssef Mamou lead YoLa Fresh, which has scaled throughout the region. Youssef’s leadership at Careem, North Africa’s largest ride-hailing network, and 212Founders, a Moroccan venture capital investor, is invaluable. Larbi’s leadership expertise at Jumia, a leading African e-commerce company, gives YoLa Fresh an unmatched advantage in Africa’s unique market dynamics.
