Gebana Brasil Is part of:
Food & Agri Fund

Producer of organic, non-GMO soy, cereals and seeds

Impression

On the 13th of February 2023, the Anders Invest Food & Agri fund has acquired a majority share in Gebana Brasil. Gebana Brasil is active in Brazil, in the production and processing of organic, non-genetically modified soy, cereals and seeds. The enterprise is market leader in this niche market, which is small as it contains less than than 0.5% of the total Brazilian market, but that has been showing a steady increase over for years of ca. 10%. With this, Gebana Brasil contributes to improving the sustainability of agriculture in Brazil, by helping farmers in making the transition from conventional to organic agriculture, without destroying natural reserves.

The shares in Gebana Brasil are bought from Gebana AG, the fair trade pioneer in Switzerland. Gebana AG found its origin in the 70s from a movement of women fighting for fairly produced bananas. The vision of Gebana AG is to make the worldwide trade more fair for, local economies and nature. The most important reason for Gebana AG to sell its share in Gebana Brasil is that Gebana AG wants to focus more on B2C and consumer products, whereas Gebana Brasil has a strong B2B focus. In the coming years, Anders Invest will take over the remaining shares of Gebana AG. The current management will stay on as shareholder. Gebana AG will continue to be closely involved as minority shareholder for a minimum of three years.

The current, Brazilian management team stays on at Gebana Brasil. On behalf of Anders Invest, Saskia Korink will be involved as investment manager. Saskia has recently started as investment director at the Food & Agri fund and has extensive international experience, among which 11 years in Brazil, where she was working for BCG and Cargill. Regarding Gebana Brazil, Saskia said the following: “I look forward to being involved in Gebana Brasil and successfully leading the team to the coming growth phase. There is an increasing demand for organic soy and other inputs and Gebana Brasil is perfectly positioned to strengthen its position in this growing market.”

The strategy for Gebana Brazil will primarily focus on accelerating the growth to 60-80k tons in 2025. With this investment, we expect to further gain a foothold in South America, based on which we will receive other investment possibilities in this region.

This acquisition is part of the international investing platform Origin & Amsterdam and matches the strategy to build an international portfolio of different agri raw materials. By spreading geographically with diverse products, risks can be mitigated. The export, the contact with international customers and the invoicing of Gebana Brasil will be through the trade office of Origin & Amsterdam.
