Global Food Properties is a boutique real estate brokerage headquartered in the United States. We have broad relationship and transaction experience in the sale of food manufacturing plants across all of North and South America, Europe, and Oceania.

Over 30 years’ experience with nearly 200 transactions at a consideration exceeding $600M, we are uniquely fluent in how margin compression and increasingly stringent food and employee safety regulations impact property use, value, and occupancy.

Whether as advisors or agents, the Firm provides thought leadership and transaction execution to an audience of stakeholders:

·         Food manufacturers and corporate occupiers

·         Plant and warehouse owners

·         Investors and speculative purchasers

·         Financial underwriters

·         Public and private developers

·         Property tax appeal counsel

Significantly, much of our work is done quietly, with discretion. This allows us to execute while the facility “inputs” remain intact and accretive to value (plant labor, facility contractors, municipal and regulatory permit holders). Noisy brokers, “For Sale” signs, and open houses are the hallmarks of a flawed process, likely headed to a mediocre outcome.
