The Missouri-based group raised $150 million in a Series D round, with backing from the Grosvenor family’s UK-based Wheatsheaf Group, Nat Simons’ Prelude Ventures, and the family-owned commodities group Louis Dreyfus Company. Prelude has backed the group in earlier rounds, and Tao Capital Partners, owned by Nicholas Pritzker has also backed the group before. 

Benson Hill has so far raised close to $300 million.

Altogether Authentic raised $5 million from the round; Dolby Family Ventures backed the group, which was founded in 2012, six years ago.
