How Global Berry’s strawberries help reduce food miles



Last year our first food production investment — Global Berry — has raised their target investment of £2.6 million from 1,150 investors. Since then they have put the investors money to work and have already started growing strawberries, all year round, that are now being sold to the local shops.

They recently shared some images of their strawberries in full bloom.

Last month Global Berry was featured on an episode of Countryfile that looked deeper into our food import carbon footprint and our local fruit and veg production (and more). You can watch the full episode below: Global Berry’s feature starts at 23:30 minutes.

Global Berry is already funded but if you would like to put your money to work into this investment you can purchase this investment on our marketplace from other investors here.

As with any investment, there are risks when investing on Abundance. Your invested capital is at risk and any return on your investment depends on the ability of the company or council you have invested in to pay your returns. Investments on Abundance are generally long term and you should be prepared to hold them to maturity. The investments are illiquid and you may not be able to sell them if you need your money back earlier, and their value can rise or fall. Some investments may be secured, but this does not guarantee repayment or your return.

Quoted returns are no guarantee of future returns and past performance is not a guide to future performance. Specific risks will apply in relation to each investment. Please consider all risks before investing and read the Offer Document or Factsheet for each investment. The investments on Abundance include debentures or bonds and peer to peer loans — Abundance’s service in relation to loans is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
