Seviora & Temasek's Strategic Move in the Future of Food: Investing in APAC's Agri-Food Revolution

In a landmark partnership, Seviora Capital, in collaboration with Temasek, has announced the launch of The Future of Food and Farming (Seviora T3F) Strategy, a pioneering investment initiative aimed at reshaping the agricultural and food landscape in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. With an impressive US$173 million raised since August 2023, this strategy marks a significant commitment towards accelerating the transformation of the Agri-Food industry into a more sustainable, innovative, and efficient future.

The Vision Behind Seviora T3F Strategy

Seviora T3F Strategy is not just about financial investment; it's about investing in the future of food and farming. The initiative targets late venture and early growth Agri-Food companies in APAC, focusing on those that offer innovative solutions to the pressing challenges of demographic shifts and rapidly changing consumer preferences. These companies are at the forefront of creating sustainable technologies and practices that can be scaled across the region and beyond, promising a leap towards a resilient Agri-Food system that aligns with evolving consumption trends.

Strategic Partnerships and Investment Approach

The collaboration between Seviora and Temasek, a global leader in the Agri-Food sector, leverages Temasek’s extensive network, deep sectoral knowledge, and successful investment track record. This strategic partnership is poised to create a robust pipeline of investment opportunities, ensuring that the Seviora T3F Strategy has access to the best-in-class companies driving transformation within the sector. The involvement of cornerstone investor Norinchukin Bank and other institutional investors underscores the strong confidence in this visionary approach.

Capitalizing on APAC’s Unique Position

APAC stands at a critical juncture, home to 60% of the world's population but only 35% of its arable land. The region faces the daunting task of feeding a rapidly growing population with limited resources, necessitating innovative solutions to enhance agricultural efficiency, improve market access, and provide adequate financing to the fragmented agricultural sector dominated by smallholder farmers. Furthermore, with the Agri-Food sector being a significant contributor to global emissions, especially in South and Southeast Asia, the Seviora T3F Strategy also aligns with the urgent need for decarbonization.

Recent Investments and Future Prospects

The strategy's recent investment in Country Delight, an India-based online food essentials delivery brand, exemplifies Seviora T3F’s commitment to supporting companies that address critical customer needs with technology-driven solutions. This investment, alongside Temasek's historical commitment of over US$8 billion in farm-to-fork businesses globally, signals a strong belief in the growth potential of the APAC Agri-Food sector.

The Road Ahead

As the Seviora T3F Strategy continues to identify and support companies poised to revolutionize the Agri-Food sector in APAC, it stands as a testament to the potential for strategic investments to drive meaningful change. By focusing on innovation, sustainability, and efficiency, Seviora and Temasek are not only contributing to the transformation of the Agri-Food industry but are also paving the way for a future where the region can meet its food security needs while addressing environmental challenges.

The Seviora T3F Strategy marks a pivotal moment in the evolution of the APAC Agri-Food sector. Through this collaborative effort, Seviora and Temasek are setting the stage for a new era of growth, innovation, and sustainability in food and farming, promising a brighter, more resilient future for the region and its people.
