Joint Venture between Milltrust & Earth First Food Ventures

The Smart Protein Fund is a joint venture between Milltrust International (Investment Manager) and Earth First Food Ventures (Investment Advisor) to invest exclusively in the Smart Protein sector.

Earth First Food Ventures (EFFV) has built a reputation in recent years as a leading source of expertise in the Smart Protein sector, supporting the financing of some of the most compelling early stage companies in this space. Combining with Milltrust’s decade of investment management experience focused exclusively on Sustainability and Impact, the partnership will launch a dedicated fund for a more sustainable food supply chain and healthier protein production.

The purpose of the fund is to disrupt the world’s largest industry, Food, by channeling climate capital towards the scaling of the Smart Protein sector for a cleaner, healthier end-product, produced locally for local consumption, with a significantly lower carbon footprint and lower GHG emissions, while at the same time providing attractive returns in a fast-growing industry with innovative technologies.

Today, the Smart Protein industry represents 2% of current global protein consumption – a mere US$ 20Bn in top line revenue. However, over the next decade and a half, the industry is expected to scale exponentially with projected Global revenues in excess of US$ 500Bn, as an increasing number of participants enter the market with new innovative technologies.
