BUSINESS PROFILE & DIRECTORS

Business Profile: Background

Bester Feed & Grain (Pty) Ltd (BESTER) was established in 1994 for the purpose of marketing agricultural products after the agricultural control boards had been phased out. Since then the organisation, with its head office in Stellenbosch, has grown into one of the leading agricultural trading organisations in Southern Africa, with a turnover of over R5 billion.

BESTER strives toward adding value by means of excellent service, specialised market knowledge and innovative risk management, in order to optimise our clients’ prosperity. The ability to adapt and change easily motivates us to transcend the norms and set new benchmarks.

We believe in applying traditional values like honesty, reliability, respect and loyalty to our business and in maintaining a high ethical standard.
