The round also saw participation from Blue Ashva Capital, Mumbai Angels, Indus Capital along with angel investors.

The funds will be used to expand into primary packaging for consumer goods, food and beverages product categories, expanding manufacturing capabilities, research and development and building a team, the company said in a statement.

Founded in 2019, Bambrew provides alternatives to single use plastics in the packaging industry that are plastic-free, degradable and environment friendly. Its clients include Amazon, Nykaa, MyGlamm, Bata, Snitch, Harris Brushes and Mahindra among 100 others.

The Bengaluru-based startup has a manufacturing facility spread across three acres that houses a lab with standards for research and development (R&D) on new materials, processes and products. It uses products that are certified by the Government of India and the Central Pollution Control Board for being plastic free and are compostable within 130 days.

The company was founded by National Institute of Fashion Technology alumnus Vaibhav Anant, who in his past professional capacities worked at Leverage Edu, Aditya Birla, and Future Group, among others.“I am proud to share that so far, we have saved more than 60,000 tonnes of single-use plastic and more than 125,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions by creating revolutionising materials which are both functional and cost efficient to plastic,” Anant said.

Arpit Agarwal, partner at Blume, said, “We are excited to lead an investment into another innovative company such as Bambrew. Similar to how the FAME II subsidies provided tailwinds for the rise of EVs, we envision that the EPR regulations in India will lead to the rise of circular economy companies.”

EPR, or Extended Producers Responsibility, is a regime under implementation in Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016, as per which it is the responsibility of producers, importers and brand owners to ensure processing of their plastic packaging waste through recycling and safe disposal.
