Interesting to know

Develop the African agricultural sector towards a net contributor in the global food market.


Develop the African agricultural sector towards a net contributor in the global food market.


UFF is a formal investor with an informal way of working as we have literally boots on the ground. We combine in-house farming and food trade knowledge with investment expertise to optimize our farm operations and investments. Besides that, we bring ESG/impact knowledge and a global perspective to our projects.

When entering new geographical or crop markets we follow thorough due diligence procedures. This comprise of land title deeds and water rights registration to the agronomical perspective of weather, soil and water quality. Besides that, we develop full financial models to calculate returns, do price analysis and consider the impact of currency risks.

Practical issues we faced last year are: Is this soil type suitable for growing mangoes? How can we invest with US dollars in Nigeria? How can we secure water during extreme droughts?


Based on the 7th floor of 'Monarch Tower' in The Hague, we work with a small team of <13 FTE, who feel more like family than colleagues. We have a practical approach to our work as we are the bridge between farmers and institutional investors. The communication amongst the team is informal and we have a complete flat organizational structure, as we need flexibility while we travel to visit our projects.

Due to rapid expansion of our funds, we are looking for bright, entrepreneurial, passionate and adventures new members to strenghten our team.


Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) responsibility is a key component in UFF’s investment process, with a strong focus on reducing poverty through worker and community development, rural development and economic empowerment. At UFF we are not “box ticking” to comply with social responsibility obligations but our dedicated team achieves practical results like introducing healthcare (clean water, HIV test, free eyecare), schooling and educational programs, reduce water usage in farming practice and improve labour conditions.

UFF is guided by international standards from: International Labour Organization, World Health Organization, UN Food and Agriculture Organization and Farm Animal Investment Risk and Return initiative. We are a proud signatories to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment with an A+ rating (2018).


Food security is a growing global concern. Currently there are over 7 billion people on earth, this number is on the rise and is expected to reach 9 billion people by the year 2050. Food production will need to increase at the same rate to meet the demand.

Africa has an abundance of fertile soil with a wide range of climates for agricultural diversity. Through investment into Africa, the continent cannot only feed itself, but can be developed into the breadbasket for the rest of the world. Besides the global importance on food security, this will bring the local African markets major economic benefits, which result in reduced poverty, improved live expectancy and independency.


We currently have 2 offices located in:
- The Hague (Netherlands) and
- Cape Town (South Africa)

Our projects are scattered over Africa in:
- South Africa
- Eswatini
- Zambia
- Malawi
- Nigeria
- Morocco
