Products & Services

Over the last 27 years, we have stayed focused on a single asset class, agri commodities, and within that, built a diversified and relatively recession resistant portfolio, largely comprising food raw materials and ingredients.

Our business model is based on adjacency expansion to create systematic, repeatable organic and inorganic growth initiatives around our core supply chain business. We have grown by taking advantage of adjacent opportunities in businesses, which share geographies, channels, costs, suppliers and customers, and acquiring new businesses and competencies. We have repeated this formula to evolve from a 1 product and 1 country business to a multi-country, multi-product supply chain manager.

Our business is today organised under 5 segments:

  • Edible Nuts, Spices and Vegetable Ingredients;
  • Confectionery and Beverage Ingredients;
  • Food Staples and Packaged Foods;
  • Industrial Raw Materials; and
  • Commodity Financial Services.
