Trigo, an Israeli startup whose technology allows customers to automatically check out in grocery stores, said on Monday it raised $22 million in an early stage funding round, bringing funds raised to date to $29 million.

The round was led by growth fund Red Dot Capital with participation of existing investors Vertex Ventures Israel and Hetz Ventures.

The funds will enable the company to expand its technology for even larger store sizes and grow its partnerships with leading US and European grocery retailers.

Trigo, it said, is currently installed in stores as large as 5,000 square feet.
