Kibo Capital and Amarante Investments were looking to co-invest in one of the leading specialty coffee exporters in Ethiopia, Metad LLC.
The investors requested support in assessing the specialty coffee industry and opportunities for Metad. We provided an overview and competitive landscape assessment of the specialty coffee market. We also provided a review of Metad’s positioning in Ethiopia and a customer relationship evaluation.
The investment will be used to increase Metad’s production capacity and better meet its customers’ needs throughout the US, Europe, and East Asia.
This engagement was executed through USAID’s East Africa Trade & Investment Hub.
