Food & Agri focus guarantees a high deal volume

Global macro trends present significant challenges for our planet and mankind in the years to come. Never before have we been faced with such major drivers of change, that are ultimately shaping our future. With a growing world population, changing climate and increased demand for Western-style diets, the Food & Agri sector in particular faces some clear challenges; in short, it has to do more with less. There is an increased focus on efficiency and sustainability throughout the entire value chain. In addition, changing consumer preferences such as increased health awareness and a shift towards convenience products fuel the demand for innovations.

The Netherlands forms a spill in this sector with c. 5,300 companies active in food production. We rank second highest with respect to receiving private R&D investment in Food & Agri in Europe and host 12 of the world’s largest Food & Agri companies who have major production or R&D sites in the Netherlands. Undoubtedly, these forces are leading to an eruption of new business models, emergence of (smaller) niche players, consolidation, and thus, M&A activity. Combined with a continued strong focus of private equity on the sector, this guarantees high deal volumes in the near future.

Do you recognise yourself in the following?

  • Up to 2 years of relevant work experience in investment banking or corporate finance;
  • Outstanding academic track record;
  • Creative, entrepreneurial personality with well-developed general interests and a team-focused ‘performance-driven’ mentality;
  • Demonstrable quantitative and qualitative analysis skills;
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills in both English and Dutch (additional languages are an advantage);
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office (Excel, PowerPoint, Word).
