Why French Food Capital?

I am happy and proud to join Paul, Laurent, Perrine, Denis, and the entire team in the FrenchFood Capital adventure and am eager to contribute to the success and development of the fund. Beyond the entrepreneurial spirit, human values, and its ecosystem of experts, I am convinced that the dual profile, both investor and entrepreneur, of the FrenchFood Capital team is a guarantee of success.

It is a real differentiating factor to support ambitious entrepreneurs in the establishment and development of new leading food groups, a sector undergoing profound change driven by evolving consumption patterns and new consumer expectations.
