Agridient’s added value

  • Fund III
  • Entry 2017
  • Exit 2019
  • Sales €40 million

Agridient is a global trader in processed ingredients for the food-, feed- and manufacturing industry. The company offers a range of ingredients such as starches, sweeteners and proteins, based on crops like corn, wheat, tapioca, potato and soy. Agridient’s profit margin is not based on price fluctuations, but on added value towards their clients. Repackaging of ingredients into client-specific bags is one example of the services of Agridient. Others are supply chain management, risk management and quality assurance.

The current activities of Agridient used to be one of the specialties of Nidera. Nimbus was able to acquire the company together with management, not long before the trading house announced a loss of several hundreds of millions and was taken over by Cofco. We did assist in the carve out of the business and gave the young and enthusiastic management team of Agridient some backup in the finance department.

Our plan for Agredient is to grow the business by creating more value added in the chain, by further developing partnerships with our suppliers and services for our customers. In addition, we will grow our specialties. A large corporate carve-out, a dynamic management team and a clear plan going forward are ideal ingredients for a successful growth story to come!
