Poised for Greater Growth
Arlon focuses its Latin American investments on smaller middle-market growth companies and buyouts across the food and agriculture supply chain, with a primary focus on Brazil, Colombia and Peru.
Latin America is a leading agricultural exporter, particularly to emerging economies in Asia, such as China. The region also has significant untapped land resources which are well suited for cultivation, and Latin American countries are making significant investments in infrastructure in order to take advantage of the opportunities provided by this natural wealth. Additionally, as rising household incomes in emerging economies fuel changing diets, consumption patterns and demand for food stuffs, emerging middle classes in Latin America are demanding higher food safety standards and more convenience.
Arlon's Latin America team has extensive investment expertise in Latin American businesses and deep, local industry contacts. Arlon seeks to partner with food and agriculture growth-oriented businesses throughout Latin America.
