BOULDER, Colorado (AP) ― Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has invested in a Boulder food company that focuses on sustainable aquaculture.
LoveTheWild, according to a Daily Camera report, said the actor was among the backers that helped fund its $3 million Series A investment. The Boulder, Colorado company makes cook-it-yourself seafood kits sourced with sustainably raised fish.
DiCaprio will join the company’s advisory board. His financial contribution was not disclosed.
In a statement, DiCaprio praised LoveTheWild’s sustainable fishing practices.
The recent round of investing will help LoveTheWild, which currently offers a mix of wild-caught and farmed fish, to move toward sourcing 100 percent of its fish from aquaculture operations.
This is not the Oscar-winning actor’s first eco-investment. In May he invested in Runa, an organic, fair-trade tea company. He also had ties to electric car maker Fisker and waste management firm Rubicon Global.
