I’m a creative designer by trade but recently took part in a business course that kick-started a fascination with the behaviors and strategies of businesses. I’ve been investing since January this year so I’m still very early in my journey.
The Rize Sustainable Future of Food ETF (ticker: FOOD). Conscious consumers, United Nations sustainability goals, and progressive government policies are driving the growth of the sustainable future of food. Conservative estimates have put the growth rate of the industry at an annualized 10%. A Statista survey suggests that by 2040 meat alternatives will account for more than 50% of all meat consumed globally. FOOD gives access to 45 companies that are positioned to ride this theme. This is a long-term play and – although it’s US-centric – it has minimal overlap with the S&P 500 so would sit nicely in a diversified portfolio. The ETF has an expense ratio of 0.45%.
FOOD is a themed, passively managed ETF that aims to replicate the performance of the Foxberry Tematica Research Sustainable Future of Food USD Net Total Return Index. The Index is designed to provide exposure to companies that are innovating across the whole food value chain to build a more sustainable, secure, and fair global food system. It’s rebalanced semi-annually.
There is a lot of potential growth in the future of a sustainable food industry and it’s an area often overlooked. Research suggests the industry will grow around 10% year on year so this ETF could see consistent growth long into the future.
