Kellogg’s Cafe Showcases Moringa Products from Kuli Kuli
NEW YORK, NY, March 17, 2017 — Kuli Kuli and Kellogg’s NYC, the Times Square-based eatery, is taking St. Patrick’s Day to a whole new level with special green moringa recipes. In January, the Kellogg Company’s venture capital fund, eighteen94 capital, announced it led a $4.25 million Series A funding of Kuli Kuli, a manufacturer and distributor of moringa-based products.
Known as the “new kale,” moringa is a tree that grows across the tropics and produces leaves that are rich in protein, antioxidants and other nutrients. With a bright green color and an earthy flavor similar to matcha, moringa makes an easy and nutritious addition to any meal.
With the kickoff on St. Patrick’s Day, Kellogg’s NYC will feature four moringa-inspired recipes and provide a special Kuli Kuli Moringa Green Energy shot with every order from March 17 to April 1. The delicious creations are:
- The Luckiest Green Parfait – Moringa, mint, bananas and Special K cereal make a perfect parfait
- Berry Moringa Smoothie – A mouthwatering blend of raspberries, strawberries, cinnamon and moringa
- Banana Nut Moringa Smoothie – Moringa, bananas and almond butter blend with greek yogurt
- Kuli Kuli Special K Cereal Bowl – Special K, moringa and pears mix up a cereal favorite
“Kellogg’s NYC is the perfect place to showcase new food innovation. We’re excited to bring our moringa products to a whole new audience and help Americans experience an amazing new green,” said Lisa Curtis, Kuli Kuli Founder and CEO.
Kuli Kuli is the first investment for Kellogg’s eighteen94 capital. The fund was launched in June 2016 to invest primarily in companies pursuing next-generation innovation, bolstering Kellogg Company’s access to cutting-edge ideas and trends. The investment mandate includes a focus on start-up businesses pioneering new ingredients, foods, packaging and enabling technology.
