Commercial due diligence for an equity investment in Tropigalia

Kibo Capital Partners provides growth capital to high-growth SMEs across East and Southern Africa. Kibo completed an investment into Tropigalia, a leading Mozambican fast-moving consumer goods company.

We conducted a commercial due diligence that assessed the retail and distribution sectors in Mozambique. The work provided insights on the size and structure of informal markets, assessed Tropigalia’s distribution strategy, and validated the investment thesis of increased informal market penetration.

The transaction will help Tropigalia expand its product offering by capturing additional exclusive distribution agreements with leading global brands and launching new product lines under its own ‘Gourmet’ brand.

This engagement was executed through USAID’s Southern Africa Trade and Investment Hub
