Standard Chartered PE Invests $35m In Jordan Poultry Producer

SCPE said it would obtain two seats on the board of Al Jazeera, Jordan’s only fully integrated poultry producer and distributor.

Standard Chartered Private Equity (SCPE), the private equity arm of Standard Chartered Bank, said it had spent $35 million to buy a minority stake in Jordanian poultry producer Al Jazeera Agricultural Co, its first investment in Jordan.
