Are you an entrepreneur in food or agriculture seeking finance?
Organic Food & Agriculture
Our relationship with the soil and the earth requires a systemic perspective.
We can no longer afford to keep a world view that thinks of agricultural land as the starting point for a limitless process of extraction. Rather, agriculture needs to be seen within the context of a natural system. This system includes nutrients, water, biodiversity, animal welfare and social conditions.

The impact of Organic Food and Agriculture
We need farmers who can adopt methods that conserve and recycle natural resources. We want to help create a vibrant and diverse agricultural sector with a larger number of smaller farms, more closely connected to local communities and local consumers.
Respecting animal welfare is a fundamental aspect of how we interact with the world around us and a core principle of organic farming.
Organic farming has subscribed itself to safeguarding and respecting nature. As such, having higher animal welfare standards than in conventional farming is one of its major goals.
