Dutch Sprouts teams up with Veris Investments
Dutch Sprouts teams up with Veris Investments as of January 20th, 2017. Dutch Sprouts aims to support farmers worldwide to increase their yields by providing them with intuitive, smart and affordable solutions in order to monitor crop and soil quality. Dutch Sprouts combines various sensors and complex databases in its products, enabling farmers to substantially increase their yields. Veris Investments invests in companies and projects with activities in the food value chain in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Dutch Sprouts’ subsidiary SoilCares has initially launched its soil analysis services in East Africa, driven by its dedicated team based in Nairobi, Kenya. The partnership with Veris Investments fits well in both organisations’ mission and strategy, and enables Dutch Sprouts to further expand the company’s services in other African and international markets. Veris Investments is the second investment company partnering with Dutch Sprouts, following the entry of investor Nimbus in 2016.
