Biography

Avrio Ventures looks for investments in Industrial Bioproducts: Industrial and consumer goods manufactured wholly or in part from renewable biomass (plant based resources) applied to produce fuels and energy, lubricants, animal feed, polymers, solvents, emulsifiers as well as natural fiber composite materials; Nutraceutical Ingredients: Food or agricultural inputs that provide health and medical benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease; and Food technology: The application of food science to the selection, preservation, processing, packaging, distribution, and use of safe, nutritious and wholesome food.

We focus on commercialization and growth stage investments. Typically, the use of proceeds is to commercialize products, initiate product roll-outs, expand distribution and market presence, or fund growth (organically or through acquisitions). Avrio will invest up to $10 million in Canadian-based companies over the life of any single portfolio company. 

The Farm Credit Canada Venture fund investments are placed and managed by Avrio Ventures. Within the green economy we currently have investments in Siamons International (biopolymers) and Botaneco (natural cosmetics).
