Over the past 15 years, Amadlelo Agri has been making meaningful contributions to the black agribusiness commercialisation in:
HORTICULTURE CROPS (MACADAMIA)
Amadlelo Agri was one of the founding partners of one of the Eastern Cape’s first macadamia farms, just outside of East London on the east coast of South Africa.
CITRUS & DECIDUOUS FRUIT
The company insights and extensive experience in this sub-sector is based on its extensive network of high net worth commercial farmer/shareholders, who, own citrus and deciduous fruit farms, across the Eastern Cape.
LIVESTOCK (DAIRY & PORK)
This experience has been attained through two well-established and profitable entities in this sector in the Eastern Cape
- Six dairy farming community partnerships, totalling close on 7,000 cows that produce close to 126,000 litres of milk per day
- Fort Hare Piggery in Alice.
Amadlelo Agri has more than five years as an operator and investor of the Seven Stars Trust’s value-added cheese and butter processing plant.
It is also a shareholder in Coega Dairy ultra-high temperature (UHT) milk and butter plant.
Coega Dairy produces the Coastal View’s expanding brand of dairy products at the world-class Coega Special Economic Zone in Nelson Mandela Bay.
Our values of stewardship, transparency, trust and accountability guide all elements of our business.
