ImpactAlpha, July 21 – Cambridge, Mass.-based Mori (formerly Cambridge Crops) makes an edible, silk-based coating that keeps food fresher and curbs food waste. The company’s new name comes from the Bombyx mori moth, from which its silk is derived.

Its Series A funding was led by Acre Venture Partners. The Engine and Closed Loop Partners re-upped alongside Refactor Capital, Blindspot Ventures and the Fink Family Foundation. New backers include Prelude Ventures and the Jeremy and Hannelore Grantham Environmental Trust.
