Our vision at VP Capital in the Agrifood domain is that providing food for our planet’s growing population is a future-proof business. Which is why we have made and will continue to make several direct and indirect investments in sustainable solutions that have an impact on this domain. However, it is also why we have the ambition to make donations that can help overcome the key challenges facing the agrifood domain.
On the left are the key challenges of the Agrifood domain listed. Possible solutions where our donations can make a difference:
- Donate to organisations which help protect, sustain or restore biodiversity and our natural resources
- Organisations that help farmers regenerate farmland in dry or non-arable areas
- Partnerships aimed at boosting the resilience of the agricultural and feed sectors
- Initiatives for developing sustainable agriculture curricula in college education
- Certified producers of organic products

Together with the independent professional impact organisation Telos impact, we’ve compiled a shortlist of worthwhile causes that make a tangible contribution to overcoming key challenges within the agrifood domain. The selection is based on extensive due diligence and a thorough analysis of such criteria as impact, management & governance, finance, operations and the organisation’s general action plan. This exercise is performed every year to determine which organisation or organisations make the most significant contribution.
We have chosen The Good Food Institute (GFI) within the Agrifood domain, as it achieved the highest score in this field at Telos’ screening. GFI is a non-profit organization that tackles the challenges of creating an adaptive and resilient food system while working within planetary boundaries.
Good Food Institute (GFI)
The GFI is a non-profit think tank and international network of organizations that work to accelerate innovations in alternative proteins. By developing plant-based meat, cultivated meat, and fermentation technologies, we can reduce the environmental impacts of our food system, reduce the risk of zoonotic diseases, and ultimately feed more people with fewer resources. At GFI, they are working towards a world where alternative proteins are no longer just an alternative.Website Good Food Institute
