About us

Agrinam is a newly-organized special purpose acquisition corporation formed under the laws of the Province of British Columbia for the purpose of acquiring a company in the Agribusiness industry in North America, either in the primary sector (with a focus on Superfoods and specialty products produced in high-tech greenhouses) or the value-added sector (with a focus on Food Tech as well as Wine & Spirits produced in new regions that have a niche differentiator relative to the competition).

Agrinam also intends to generally target companies for its Qualifying Acquisition that have adopted best ESG practices and technologies for the efficient use of resources and are committed to taking care of the environment, including companies that will seek to promote the recycling of resources by applying the circular economy concept to reuse all possible inputs and avoid or reduce pollution and environmental degradation.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Agrinam is not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of completing its Qualifying Acquisition.
