About Us

Trently Advisors is an investment firm with a permanent capital base that allows for alignment with founders and management teams, flexible transaction structures and efficient decision-making. We invest primarily in consumer-facing companies with particular emphasis on fast-growing food businesses. We also consider investment in companies outside of these areas in certain opportunistic situations.

We seek to be active partners and to add value beyond financial capital.

Our involvement often spans functional areas
