We provide a specialist service by entering into preferential contracts with the factory or primary supplier and by constantly delivering quality products to the animal feed sector and feedlots.
Value is added by means of long-term agreements, financing, storage, quality control, risk management and transportation of ingredients.
Imports from Europe, China, Latin America and elsewhere in Africa are supported by reliable logistic functions and continuous quality control. We also supply ingredients to selected clients in SADC (Southern African Development Community) countries.
BESTER is committed to supplying animal feed commodities and products, including feed additives that are duly registered according to the regulations and guidelines of the Fertilizers, Farm Feeds, Agricultural Remedies and Stock Remedies Act (Act 36 of 1947). In the event of BESTER being the principal importer or supplier, we can carry our own product registration list. When sourcing from other suppliers, we make a special effort to ensure that their product is registered.
As a member of the Animal Feed Manufacturers Association (AFMA), BESTER is also committed to the principles of good manufacturing, as formulated by AFMA. In accordance with this, we supply all our feed additives with a Certificate of Analysis. In general, regular laboratory testing is done on our products, and analytical as well as technical data on each product are available on request.
Bester procures high quality soya oilcake and sunfloweroilcake from various crushers locally as well as internationally. We offer the client from the mill or origin he requires, as we make it a priority to ensure we have stock at all the mills all the time. Pricing strategies and stock management are being done for a variety of clients and we pride ourselves that we can deliver as the client requires.
Continuous supply of raw materials
The fixed allocations at mills country-wide enable us to provide by-products on a monthly basis to most sectors of the animal feed industry. These products include wheat bran, hominy chop and brewer’s waste, which are mainly used as fillers in a ration.
Local cotton gins also make use of our services to promote their cotton seed to the animal feed industry. This product originates particularly from the Vaalharts, Modderrivier and Prieska areas.
The close cooperation with the fish industry in South Africa, as well as in Namibia and Mauritius, helped to make Bester one of the biggest fish meal suppliers in the market for animal feed and also the pet food industry.
Carcass meal and blood meal from abattoirs country-wide are also supplied to the pet food industry.
