UK: ADM Capital's Cibus fund creates new holding company with 230-hectare berry farming acquisition

London-based private equity and advisory firm ADM Capital announced that its Cibus Fund has acquired the majority of the assets, totaling 230 hectares, of international berry producer Hall Hunter Partnership (HHP). With these assets, Cibus will create a new holding company, The Summer Berry Co.

Led by ADM Capital co-founder, Robert Appleby, and Jason Silm, former head of Agribusiness Investment at VTB capital and director at Macquarie Agricultural Funds Management, Cibus aims to capitalize upon the significant investment opportunities generated by the ongoing evolution occurring in global demographics and trade patterns, and the inability to meet growing regional demand for high-value foods by some of the world’s fastest-growing economies.

With a close at $452 million, The Cibus Fund is focusing on investment opportunities across North America, Europe, and Australasia in sustainable food companies as well as in seed, fertilizer, and ag machinery and chemical producers, land-light producers of high-value nuts, fruits, vegetables, meat; aquaculture; processors and value-adders; and distributors and logistics providers.
