Innovare is an alternative investment management company focused on food and agriculture. We work primarily with small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in emerging and frontier markets involved in all aspects of food and fiber production and processing.
Existing agricultural practices, the current global slow-down, tight credit conditions and lack of financing for agricultural infrastructure have created an agricultural bottleneck. These challenges have created opportunities to finance companies in the agricultural value chain. With expanded capacity, these companies can boost yields, increase the volume of food produced and dramatically lower post-harvest losses.
