Financing from farm to fork...

FMO invests across the value chain - enhancing food security, supporting sustainability and promoting inclusive development.

Over the coming decades, the global population will increase to over 9 billion with fewer resources available. FMO has made Agribusiness a priority to help meet these challenges by focusing investments across the value chain. 

We offer various forms of financing, including long-term loans, equity, mezzanine and working capital finance. We tailor our funding package to meet the changing needs of your agribusiness company.

FMO finances companies throughout the agribusiness value chain:

• Primary production: crops, livestock, production, and fishing
• Processing: crushing, storage, handling & packaging
