A South Dakota-based startup focused on what are called “Real Foods” is in the process of moving to the Triangle. It’s backed by two Triangle area investors. The company is called Cultures for Health. Amy Huffman of ExitEvent has the details.

MORRISVILLE, N.C. – It’s not every day a company with 28 employees picks up and moves 1400 miles to North Carolina. It’s even more rare to do so without any financial incentives from local or state governments.

But a fast-growing e-commerce company with celebrity customers wanted a more vibrant startup community, access to talent and a great place to raise a family. It also had advisors and investors in Canvas On Demand co-founders and Tom and Joe Inc. angel investors Tom Lotrecchiano and Joe Schmidt. And so in June, Cultures for Health, a six-year-old company that sells products that empower consumers to create their own foods or household supplies began its move from Sioux Falls, South Dakota to Morrisville.

Co-founder Julie Feickert is already living in town and starting the hiring spree, while her husband Eric Feickert will oversee operations in South Dakota until the move is complete in August.
