Capital Financière agricole
The target area of activity is agri-food, mainly its processing. Target businesses have a processing, marketing or agricultural production project in mind that is of interest to the agri-food sector or to regional development.
Capital Financière agricole inc. (CFAI) stands out by its solid expertise in agri-food processing, its main area of intervention.
The CFAI prioritizes products and services downstream of the agricultural sector. For those upstream, the project must be innovative and structuring, and provide a comparative advantage over what already exists on the market.
These are niche sectors targeted by the CFAI when the products are in the marketing stage. A Health Canada license is required for nutraceuticcs and functional food. Only products of agricultural origin are selected.
La Financière agricole du Québec is the organization that directly backs agricultural production projects. CFAI only funds such projects if they have an innovative or structuring aspect.
