FFP's Investment

Since 2012, with the support of the JAB Consumer Funds and other partners, JAB has made several acquisitions in the coffee and tea sectors, pursuing a market consolidation strategy. In December 2016, FFP made a $50 million commitment to JAB CF Global Brand I, giving FFP exposure to a diversified asset portfolio in the global coffee sector (Jacobs Douwe Egberts, Keurig Green Mountain, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Caribou) as well as bakery and restaurant chains in the USA (Panera, Krispy Kreme and Einstein Noah).

In December 2017, FFP committed to invest an additional $150 million in JAB CF Global Brand II, JAB’s second co-investment vehicle, to continue supporting the growth strategy in the consumer goods sector. The first drawing on that commitment is expected to take place in 2018 for the closing of the merger between Keurig Green Mountain and Dr Pepper Snapple, announced on 29 January 2018.
