Benson Hill attracts new funding for growth following listing on New York Stock Exchange

Grosvenor Food & AgTech portfolio company Benson Hill, a food technology company unlocking the natural genetic diversity of plants with its cutting-edge food innovation engine, was listed on the New York Stock Exchange following a business combination with special-purpose acquisition company Star Peak Corp II which generated approximately £245m in gross proceeds.

Working with Benson Hill, we are harnessing plant biology and advances in artificial intelligence to accelerate plant breeding, developing and commercialising healthier, better tasting foods and ingredients that are more sustainable, nutritious and affordable. 

Benson Hill’s CropOS™ platform enables the analysis of a plant’s genetic traits and environmental modelling to predict breeding outcomes – advancing and accelerating plant evolution by enabling greater precision and fewer breeding cycles.

It has already produced non-genetically modified verified products such as ultra-high protein soybeans enabling ingredient and food manufacturers to deliver more protein content in plant-based foods.
