Icos Capital invests in WholeFiber
Icos Capital is backing up WholeFiber’s mission to help more people take control of their diet, their health, and their quality of life by eating more prebiotic fibers. Icos’ funding will be used by WholeFiber to increase production capacity, build further sales pipeline and secure a beach head position in WholeFiber’s target markets.

The company wants to provide easy solutions in filling the “Prebiotic Fiber Intake Gap” and help to lower the risk of life-style diseases – gastrointestinal and immune disorders, coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension and related metabolic dysfunctions including pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes”, says Icos Capital.
