Summit Park Investment Thesis

Our team's operational experience in the food processing industry utilizing food safety diagnostic vendors, as well as relevant experience in food policy and supply chain, gives us a unique and differentiated investment perspective. We believe diagnostic service providers and product vendors provide a mission critical value proposition to agricultural and food processing companies, which have a very high cost of failure with respect to food safety. The current regulatory climate, including FSMA, coupled with secular perceptions of food safety threats are driving new innovations in food safety diagnostics in the U.S. and internationally.
