Trading, processing, manufacturing & Distribution
The ETG business model was born from a number of factors, including Africa’s severe infrastructure deficiencies, the highly fragmented and inefficient nature of smallholder-driven crop cultivation, seasonality of African crop cycles and lack of public warehousing.
Our core business is built on a “hub-and-spoke” logistics network designed to facilitate goods aggregation and forward / backward flows between ports and the interior in key operating countries. Through the creation of our 6 business verticals, we have placed a renewed focus on a solution driven model to optimise Africa’s overall production potential.
ETG has developed into a global player with a diverse portfolio of expertise across various industries, encompassing inputs, logistics, merchandising, processing and supply chain optimisation. In last financial year, ETG procured and distributed over 8.6 Million metric tonnes commodities including maize, pulses, wheat, rice, sugar, oilseeds, cashew nuts, cocoa, coffee, fertiliser and farm implements. Eighty percent of the African-originated stock was procured at farm gate level. For more information please visit www.etgworld.com
Building on our two-way supply model, the group has redesigned core Agri business to form six verticals:
ETG Inputs Holdco Limited
We equip small scale farmers with affordable inputs & create a market for their produce. Strategically located blending plants give ETG the ability to support regions in Africa.
