A KWM statement said the €350 million vehicle is the "first agrifood fund formed in Spain and the largest in Europe with this investment strategy".

 

Barcelona-headquartered Miura manages assets with a total value of nearly €1 billion. It specialises in investment in "Spanish companies with attractive growth and consolidation plans and a clear international objective". Since 2008, Miura has invested in more than 35 businesses with operations worth more than €1.5 billion.

 

The KWM team was led by partner Isabel Rodríguez, and included partner Ildefonso Alier and associates María Mata and Patricia Martínez.

 

Rodríguez said: "In recent years we have seen how the agrifood sector has positioned itself as one of the most attractive for investments from private equity funds. This is not only a trend seen in Spain, but throughout Europe, and which will undoubtedly play an important role in the modernisation and internationalisation of the sector.”
