Claridge, the family office of Stephen Bronfman (pictured), is pursuing new food and beverage investments through a differentiated partnership model.
While food and beverage demand continues to grow, North American consumers are increasingly looking for healthy, fresh and minimally processed emerging food brands that support the health of consumers, the environment and animals. Claridge says it is looking to partner with food and beverage businesses that cater to these concerns.
Claridge has been investing in mid-market food companies for nearly 20 years in Canada and the U.S. Its investments total nearly $300mn and have created hundreds of millions in value. Direct equity participations currently include holdings in food, technology, entertainment, renewable energy, and real estate.
