For the food and nutrition industries, these are exciting times.
First of all, corporate buyers are bidding up valuations for acquisitions that appeal to foodies and millennials who prefer products that are either “authentic” or “better for you.”
While some big corporates are setting up venture arms to acquire (or invest in) early-stage businesses, others like General Mills, Snyder’s-Lance, Hormel, and Mondelez are searching for innovative add-ons for their portfolios.
In effect, these latter buyers are outsourcing their R&D. That trend spells lucrative exits for PE sellers who are commanding eye-popping valuations that can exceed 10 times EBITDA!
And second, there’s the excitement of just how much the new Trump administration and the new Congress will transform federal regulatory policy -- food safety regulations, healthcare and labor and immigration policies, farm subsidy rules, and clean labeling requirements.
Register now to learn from our 20+ experts at the Capital Roundtable’s annual all-day conference on “Private Equity Investing in Food & Nutrition Companies,” taking place Thursday, May 4, 2017, in New York City.
One of the ironies of all this is the interest in “authentic” products. The term refers to products that resonate with consumers -- sometimes because they’re produced locally, or are hand-crafted, or seem natural, or good-for-you (think Kind healthy snacks) -- or sometimes because they’re just the opposite -- since they evoke delicious memories (think Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and other classic treats).
