The Brookes Partnership (TBP) facilitates investment into the food and drink industry, with both specialised transaction support capabilities (CDD and others) and directly through its venture capital investment activities.
The Brookes Partnership comprises food industry managers and business leaders along with City professionals experienced in the food industry. Each TBP partner has had a career dedicated to the food and drink industry.
Our transaction support team consists of a combination of qualified accountants and experienced operational management. We can conduct extensive commercial due diligence specific to food and drink businesses across the UK, Europe and the USA (see case studies). We also support transactions more broadly than the food industry in smaller transactions with financial due diligence, and independent accountant valuation reports.
Our Venture Capital team focuses on the deployment of venture capital funds to UK headquartered food and drink companies (with and without exports). We seek investments up to enterprise values of £5 million, though in certain cases we can invest above this with co-investment. Our Venture Capital team is comprised of a food and drink focused team of investment professionals, former industry executives, an advisory panel of food and drink industry entrepreneurs supported by our own extensive network of industry relationships.
