Building A Circular Food & Agriculture System

Roughly one third of the food produced for human consumption every year – approximately 1.3 billion tonnes – gets lost or wasted

Our Vision

At Closed Loop Partners, we recognize that food and agriculture are critical sectors of the circular economy, requiring a transition away from emissions-intensive production systems and supply chains that create large amounts of waste. By targeting opportunities at every stage of the value chain, and exploring solutions that allow perpetual growth without damaging ecosystems — such as regenerative agriculture — we aim to eliminate waste, optimize supply chains, cycle essential nutrients and drive value across the system. 

Our Approach 

To reduce emissions and waste, we explore agtech, digital solutions for transparency and automation opportunities to meet ever-changing market demand. To advance the circularity of organic resources, we investigate new materials, applications to prolong shelf-life, food recovery solutions, regenerative agriculture innovations and composting and anaerobic digestion systems that infuse essential, value-adding nutrients back into the organics cycle.

The Circular Food Solutions Funding Platform

Catalyzing a Circular Food System

Climate urgency, persistent food insecurity, consumer awareness, and an explosion of innovation have created a catalytic opportunity for sustainable food systems change. ReFED identified that the U.S. has a $14B annual funding gap to seed and scale the innovation required to reduce food waste 50% by 2030 (SDG 12.3). Consumer awareness of the issue and its connection to climate change has never been greater. 

Investment + Innovation 

Closed Loop Partners, in partnership with ReFED, is launching a hybrid funding platform to catalyze investment and innovation in circular food solutions across the supply chain, providing catalytic capital and innovation support to drive, test and scale solutions to decarbonize supply chains, reduce food loss and repurpose food waste into valuable end products.  

This first-of-its-kind platform aims to mobilize further capital into circular food systems by offering a range of catalytic funding vehicles, including an investment fund, an innovation program, and a grant fund With full funding, the Platform will advance circular solutions that keep valuable food and organics in circulation and out of landfills, reduce food loss, and repurpose food waste into valuable end products, driving growth in a sustainable, resilient, and inclusive circular food system.
