The acquisition builds on Paine Schwartz’s track record of investing in data-driven food and agribusiness companies, including previous investments in Advanced Agrilytics, AgroFresh Solutions and FoodChain ID.

Kynetec provides market research for the agriculture and animal health industries, helping companies around the world understand the dynamics of their marketplaces, turning research into business opportunities and enabling clients to create winning strategies. Leveraging proprietary data sources and processing capabilities, the Company offers customers a suite of data-driven reporting and tracking solutions, as well as insight studies.

Aleksandra advises, “It was only last week that B2RLaw formally launched our Agriculture and Agrifood Practice so its especially pleasing that we have been able to advise on this transaction, and testament in our belief that the flourishing food and agribusiness sector is an exciting industry to be involved in. We congratulate Paine Schwartz Partners and Kynetec on this transaction”.
