Friendlier Secures $5M to Accelerate Nationwide Expansion
Friendlier, a Canadian leader in the reusable packaging industry, is thrilled to announce a successful seed extension raise to further its mission of helping businesses transition from single-use to reusable packaging. The successful closure of a $5 million funding round was led by Relay Ventures and Garage Capital, with support from experienced founders and operators.
Founded in 2019 by two chemical engineers, Friendlier offers returnable, multiple-use plastic containers at the same cost as single-use containers. Similar to a deposit fee on pop cans, customers pay a deposit which is returned when containers are returned. The containers are then sanitized and recirculated for use.
