Financial and corporate investments in spanish bio operators

Posted on Aug 2, 2018 in Marketing y Estrategias bio

Both the increase in consumption and the sector’s growth forecasts have not gone unnoticed by the food industry, investors and venture capital.

 

This has led to large companies within the agri-food sector, at a national and international level, to make worthwhile financial investments in organic companies with the aim of positioning themselves in a sector that has a high potential growth rate.

The main financial operations began in 2011 with the acquisition of the Catalan company Natursoy by Nutrition & Santé, a European manufacturer of food, dietetic and organic products. More recently, in 2015, Nazca Capital acquired 100% of the shares of the founders of the company Biogran S.L., which operates in Spain under the brands El Granero Integral and Ecocesta. This organization experienced another change when the Dutch food group, Wessanen, bought it in 2016. During that same year, Sorribas S.A. was also acquired by Idilia Foods.

2017 was also an active year in terms of financial movements, Ebro Foods confirmed its purchase of Vegetalia in January and the acquisition of the majority of shares of the family company Biosurya was announced by the French company Compagnie Biodiversité in October.
