BETTER FOOD PROJECT (BFP)
IDGB Capital is working with the Better Food Project (BFP) investment firm that seeks to create a next generation food platform by building a collection of nutritious and healthy food brands and growing them in an ethical manner. We believe nutrition, together with a more active life style, are keys to a long and healthy life. We consult the latest science, not advertising, to determine if a product is healthy.
BFP’s management team and board of directors consist of consumer packaged goods industry veterans, including former senior level executives of Kraft Foods, Dreyer’s and Nature’s Variety. Its long-term plan would be to create a platform that would employ a roll-up M&A strategy of companies in the Better for You Food Category that own complimentary assets and any financial backers may choose to be part of the platform or only be part of the Grow acquisition.
