GHR Rechtsanwälte advised on the Series B Financing of Koa Switzerland Ltd.

31.10.2023 Transactions

In October 2023, Koa Switzerland AG successfully completed its Series B financing in the amount of around USD 15 million.

Koa stands for the sustainable and fair production of natural cocoa fruit ingredients. The company buys the cocoa fruit pulp from local small-scale farmers in Ghana and processes it on-site. In doing so, Koa provides for an innovative and sustainable product at international quality levels but with a relevant part of the value chain located in Ghana.

Stephan A. Hofer (Lead Counsel), Markus Brülhart and Jil Suter supported Koa Switzerland and its owners in the preparation and execution of this financing round. It will be used, inter alia, to finance Koa's new facility in Ghana, which will not only significantly expand Koa's production capacity, but also create sustainable jobs in a marginalized region and provide a new source of income for local smallholder cocoa farmers.
