First Bite—a startup led by ex-Impossible Foods executive Reed McCord—has emerged from stealth after raising a $2 million round led by Bread & Butter Ventures to expand a data platform helping food manufacturers maximize foodservice sales. The round, supported by Leadout Capital and Pathbreaker Ventures, will help McCord and his team address a problem he identified early on at Impossible Foods: a lack of data and transparency in the foodservice channel.
