Mission Statement

"To take the lead in the sustainable commercialization in Sub-Saharan Africa of two of the world's most in demand and diminishing natural resources, arable land and forestry. To pursue every opportunity to move up the agriculture and forestry value chain, in partnership with key stakeholders, contributing to long term economic and social development in the markets we operate in.”
