INVESTING IN A FUTURE MARKET
Due to globally increasing demand for agricultural and food produce caused by shortage of resources and rapid population growth, we are a tapping into a prospective market of growing global importance and stable demand.
PARTICIPATING IN A GROWING MARKET
A continuously growing middle class, dropping poverty rates and therefore increasing purchasing power of the Colombian population result in a constant incline of domestic demand, particularly noticeable in the food sector.
IMPACT INVESTING – ENCOURAGING INVESTING WITH PURPOSE
Investing in an impact investment model opens up an interesting and diverse investment opportunity: Impact investing sets itself apart from other typical assets as it not solely aims to maximize profits but rather looks to provide a sustainable, versatile and sensible investment opportunity.
CONTRIBUTING TO THE DEVELOPMENT AND PROSPERITY OF COLOMBIA
With the cultivation of Cashew and other native tree species (“Nativos”) we are providing alternatives to cattle and coca farming and creating fair work and training opportunities. In close collaboration with the agricultural school in the province capital Puerto Carreño that is run by the governmental education and employment organization SENA, we are developing new long-term prospects for the rural population which was particularly affected by internal conflicts.
ENGAGING AS PIONEER IN A PROGRESSING COUNTRY
The development of the cashew-supply chain in Colombia is still in its early stage. That’s exactly where we see a unique opportunity for the investment: This early pioneering status allows us to benefit from early competitive advantages in the Colombian market, providing stable conditions for an interesting investment opportunity. At the same time, we are closely cooperating with other cashew farmers from the same region, who have started a few years ago, and now have harvested their first crop and have built up the infrastructure and distribution channels for the domestic demand.
THE CASHEWNUT: INVESTING IN A HIGH-QUALITY PRODUCT WITH EXCEPTIONAL POTENTIAL
The cashew nut has long been considered a superfood, next to quinoa, goji berries and co. It is a nutritious product rich of protein, essential minerals and vitamins as well as unsaturated fats. The demand of this high-quality products has continuously increased globally over the last years.
SUPPORTING THE SENSIBLE CULTIVATIION OF OUR SOILS
Many of the globally for agricultural use available soils serve the farming of cattle. By developing a mixed plantation with cashew as the main crop we are creating additional farmland which will be usable for long-term ecological and sustainable cultivation.
COUNTERACTING CLIMATE CHANGE
The continuous destruction of woodland lowers the capacity to absorb the globally growing amount of produced Carbon dioxide. With the protection of existing forests at our plantation and the plantation of further trees we are contributing to a better climate.
