    Founded 1989, Catterton Partners is a leading private equity firm with an exclusive focus on providing equity capital to growing middle market consumer companies in North America. The firm provides capital to companies to support acquisitions, management buyouts, recapitalizations, and turnarounds, as well as investment capital to support a company's continued growth and development. Catterton Partners considers investments across a number of targeted industry 'verticals' within the consumer industry: Food and Beverage, Retail and Restaurants, Consumer Products and Services, and Media and Marketing Services. Catterton Partners' sixth fund has over $2.5 billion of equity capital under active management. Catterton Partners recently closed its seventh buyout fund, Catterton Partners VII, L.P., as well as its second growth fund, Catterton Growth Partners II, L.P. With the closing of these two funds, which include a combined $2.1 billion of Limited and General Partner commitments, Catterton now has over $4.0 billion under active management focused on growing well-positioned consumer companies. Since 1989, L Catterton's funds have made over 150 investments in leading consumer brands across all segments of the consumer industry. With over $14 billion of equity capital dedicated to growing middle market companies and emerging high-growth enterprises, the firm claims it is the 'largest and most experienced consumer-focused private equity group in the world.'
