Sustainable Local Food Investment Group
Consulting Services
General info
We invest in early stage companies along the entire food value chain:
production / farming / urban ag
processing / business services
aggregation / distribution
consumer packaged goods
grocery / other retail
food service / meal delivery
waste / compost

We work to find a financing structure that maximizes value for us and you, whether as equity or convertible debt. We typically structure deals as LLC’s or C-Corps, and occasionally but rarely, as outright debt.

Each member is free to invest, or not, in any company presented before us. As a result, investments tend to range from as little as $25k to as much as $500k.
