NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Nutrition Capital Network (NCN) (www.nutritioncapital.com), an organization that connects investors with high-potential growth companies in the nutrition and health & wellness industry, is holding its Spring Investor Meeting on April 29-30 in New York City, where 20-22 selected growth companies will present to 50-70 investment groups representing $6 billion in capital.

With private equity leaders and strategic investors such as Bayer, DSM, Coca-Cola, Kelloggs, Pepsi and Unilever among its distinguished Cornerstone Investors, NCN serves as a gateway for growth companies to obtain both capital and seasoned partners. The NCN XII Spring Investor Meeting in New York will highlight growth companies in a range of segments, including dietary supplements, natural & organic food and beverages, and nutritional ingredients, among others. Presenting companies are selected and coached by NCNs committee of industry veterans.

NCN investment meetings also present the Health & Wellness Investor Forum, where NCN Principals and Partners present industry data and insights into recent transactions.

NCN tracks investment activity in the nutrition and health & wellness industry throughout the year. The industry is on track to equal, if not surpass, the record high of 287 transactions posted in 2012 with recent Q1 transactions showing sustained interest among investors, noted Grant Ferrier, NCN CEO and co-founder. Last year, we saw over 50% growth in financings despite a 12% drop in M&A activity, indicating strong momentum in the nutrition and health & wellness markets served by NCN.

NCN has a successful track record of matching entrepreneurs, growth companies and technology innovators with suitable investors, acquirers and strategic partners. Of the 287 companies that have presented at NCN Investor Meetings from 2007-2012, 43% have completed some form of transaction. Past presenters that have closed significant transactions include Food Should Taste Good, a company acquired by General Mills in February 2012, in addition to Annies, Immaculate Baking, Zico and Zhenas Gypsy Tea.
