The Agri-Vie Fund II is an agri-business fund focusing on the food and agribusiness sector in Sub-Saharan Africa. Norfund, that has been invested with Agri-Vie Fund I since 2010, worked closely with the management on establishing fund II and has committed to invest USD 15 million in Agri-Vie fund II.
The first close of the second Agri-Vie Fund was announced in February 2017 after attracting commitments of over $100 million - one third more than the initial target.
“Agri-Vie is an important partner for Norfund. There is a considerable investment deficit in the food and agribusiness sector, and we are pleased to see that our investments in this sector also can help catalysing other private investors”, says Norfund CEO, Kjell Roland.
