Why Food & Agriculture Private Equity?


  1. Increased Consumer Demand:  Population growth, a growing middle class, and an increasingly knowledgeable consumer have increased pressure on the entire food and agriculture sector.

  2. Urgent Need to Produce More Food with Fewer Resources:  Decreasing availability of land, water, and labor put pressure on the profit margins of agricultural producers, processors, and distribution.  More volatile weather and geopolitical tensions add friction to supply chains and threaten the prevailing food trade routes.

  3. Large Addressable Market with Low Private Capital Penetration:  Food and agriculture is 5% of US GDP and provides 10.5% of employment in the US; however, there are relatively few private market avenues into the industry compared to other sectors of its size.
