A Food Revolution Has Begun

A food demand-driven investment opportunity leveraged by technology

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food”

George Bernard Shaw

The Cibus strategy is a food and agribusiness focused platform that will invest opportunistically in food companies whose operating model, proprietary technologies or secure access to natural resource inputs provide a sustainable competitive advantage.

Our most essential industry contributes 26% of all greenhouse gas emissions with cascading effects on food and water security, poverty, migration and human health.

We can transform our food and farming economy to be modern, resource efficient and competitive.  This means an economy that is net zero aligned, with economic growth decoupled from resource use.  It means transitioning from linear to circular, fossil-based to bio-based, with resilient supply chains that reduce and re-use waste.

It is not just a matter of principal: there is no alternative.

We are delighted to have a head-start in the journey to advance commercial food production away from the destruction wreaked by traditional agriculture.  We look for the Cibus funds to play their part in decarbonising the agriculture sector, reducing the use of agro-chemicals and restoring the biosphere we all live in.

I look forward to welcoming you on this adventure.

The future of food is being shaped by changing consumer demand, supply constraints and regulatory changes

Changing Consumer Demand

60%

increase in global food production needed by 2030

60%

of the World population will be living in cities by 2030

31%

of consumers are purchasing more items tailored for their health

Supply Constraints

1/3 of global greenhouse gas emissions are produced in the food value chain

Regulatory Changes

A universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and
prosperity by 2030.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

USA Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad

Reforms designed to help deliver the Government’s commitment to be net zero by 2050.

UK Farming for the Future

With a world more determined to achieve net zero by 2050, technological developments in food production are critical.

In developing the Cibus investment strategy, we highlighted the trend that the growing middle classes, particularly in Asia, look to shift their calorific intake from plant to animal products as a result of their increasing disposable income and as a sign of their social achievement.

Now with global determination to achieve net zero, the production of the necessary meat to satisfy this demand trend offers a raft of investment opportunities; not just alternative proteins but alternative (ways of producing) meat proteins as well as technological developments to make meat production less demanding on the environment. There are similar initiatives across many other aspects of food and agriculture.
