Where We Work

Globally Present, Locally Driven

Our roots stem from a private sector agribusiness in America’s heartland. Our projects, partnerships and local insights cross continents. These factors steer how we work to strengthen global agricultural markets. But, you don’t have to take our word for it. Learn more about individual projects below.

MALAWI / CAT

Center for Agricultural Transformation

Establishing a hub to catalyze Malawi’s agricultural growth

Land O'Lakes Venture37, the University of Minnesota, Stellenbosch University and Malawi University of Science and Technology have forged an innovative partnership to establish CAT — a central agricultural hub funded by the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World. By leveraging our core partners’ scientific, technological and agribusiness expertise and deep regional connections, CAT will forge integrated research-to-impact pathways that reduce productivity gaps between men and women, and foster diversified, resilient and health smallholder households - particularly those transitioning from tobacco farming to alternative livelihoods.
