Debt financing was provided by Sahel Capital’s Social Enterprise Fund for Agriculture in Africa (SEFAA), Alpha Mundi Group through its Alpha Jiri Investment Fund, and Global Social Impact Investments to fund both CAPEX and working capital investments in support of short and long-term growth.
This funding will empower Complete Farmer to enhance its technology infrastructure, scale its operations, and drive expansion into other African countries while improving sustainability and visibility from farm to table for large commodity buyers.
Complete Farmer stands as a compelling investment opportunity for DP World’s Innovation Venture Fund. The company is not just seeking a long-term logistics partner; they are on a mission to transform cold-chain in Africa. With an eye on international commodity buyers, Complete Farmer aims to amplify agricultural exports from the ports of West and East Africa. This partnership promises to reshape the landscape of cold chain capabilities in the region.
Newtown Partners is excited to work with Complete Farmer to help them build a growing partnership with DP World and to facilitate synergies between their other portfolio startups, like Shypple, who are creating efficiencies in cross-border fresh produce trade.
Since its inception in 2017, Complete Farmer has already achieved notable milestones in revenue growth and market expansion, bringing together over 12,000 farmers across five key regions in Ghana, and overseeing the cultivation of over 30,000 acres of land and delivering commodities internationally.
The passionate team understands the challenges in the African market and is applying a technology and data-first approach to transform traditional agriculture into a more efficient and profitable industry.
With its proven asset-light marketplace business model, Complete Farmer is well-positioned to transform the African agriculture value chain and contribute to food security, economic growth, and sustainability on the continent.
