Notre client

Soil Capital is a technology-driven agronomy business with international experience since 2013 designing and executing farm transition strategies to regenerate soil health while delivering superior profitability. Over the last two years, we have developed a unique decision-support and reward platform for regenerative transitions, called mySoilCapital. It enables farmers to monetise their carbon and compare their costs through the production of a certified report of a farm’s agronomic, economic and GHG performance. After a first sales cycle with French and Belgian farmers as well as food and farming businesses ranging from supermarkets to farmer cooperatives, we are now preparing for significant growth and development.
