Zambeef is a real giant, involved in the production, processing, distribution and retailing of beef, chicken, pork, milk, dairy products, eggs, edible oils, stock feed, flour and bread. It also has large row cropping (maize, soya beans and wheat) operations, with around 5,000 Ha of row crops under irrigation and 1,500 Ha of rain-fed/dry-land crops available for planting each year, according to the company’s website.

“Those are certainly the big developments,” Kopulande said. Zambeef’s financials are impressive. It had annual revenues of ZMK770.5 billion (US$162 million) for the financial year ended 30 September 2010. “We have one of the leading distribution and retail footprints in Zambia,” Kopulande added. Zambeef currently operates 87 stores under the Zambeef banner and 20 in-house butcheries in Shoprite supermarket outlets in Zambia, while it has seven of its own fast food outlets under the brand Zamchick Inn. It operates two in-house butcheries in

NIGERIAN EXPANSION In Febuary Zambeef announced it had invested US$10million at a farm at Ikenna, 80km from Nigeria’s capital Lagos. It includes a meat processing facility and soybean farming. “We have already developed a supply chain in Nigeria over the past two years,” Kopulande told our researcher. “Nigeria is important to us going forward.” www.southafricamag.com

Zambeef’s road to Nigeria began in 2009, after Shoprite had expanded into the country from the supermarket chain’s base in South Africa. Zambeef operates Shoprite stores in Zambia, and the chain wanted to use Zambeef as a supplier and to staff Shoprite butchery counters in Nigeria. Zambeef has invested around US$2 million in Nigeria and plans to invest a further US$8 million over the next

Zambeef predicts revenue will more than double in Nigeria by year-end. “What Zambeef has been able to do in Nigeria in a very short time frame is nothing short of a miracle,” Gerhard Fritz, Africa operations manager for Shoprite, was quoted as saying recently.

PALM OIL In January Zambeef announced plans to boost its palm oil plantation in Mpika. It is a significant move for the firm, according to Kopulande. Zambeef said it will invest US$2.5 million in the palm plantation in Mpika, which when in operation would be the lead exporter of crushed palm oil in the region. In a statement, Zambeef CEO Francis Grogan said that the 20,000 Ha plantation – which was launched in 2008 – would be boosted further to make it achieve its potential and produce the long-term benefits. “Zambeef remains committed to develop its palm plantation,’’ he said. Zambia is among the largest importers of palm oil from Asia, with Zambeef importing large quantities from Malaysia, which it uses in its limping unit at Zamanita, he added. To achieve a healthy crop yield, Zambeef has engaged palm experts from Palm Oil Technology of South Africa, one of the leading palm consultants in the world, said Kopulande. Zambeef’s subsidiary, Zampalm Limited, has already planted the first 3,000 Ha of palms. “The palm oil project will not benefit Zambeef in terms of exports, but would also play a key role in our 10

ZAMBEEF AT A GLANCE Zambeef Products Plc is one of the largest agri-businesses in Zambia and the West African region, involved in the production, processing, distribution and retailing of beef, pork, chickens, eggs, milk, dairy products, edible oils, flour and bread throughout Zambia and West Africa. The company is also one of the largest cropping operations in Africa with 5,000 Ha under irrigation of row crops. The Group is in the process of rolling out a palm plantation. Zamleather Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary, is involved in the tanning of hides for export to the Far East and Europe as well as the production of finished leather, shoes and industrial footwear, mainly for the domestic and regional markets. The company is headquartered in Lusaka, Zambia. CEO: Francis Grogan Financials: Year over year, Zambeef Products Plc has been able to grow revenues. It has also enjoyed bottom line growth. Palm Plantation: Zambeef has planted the first 3,000 Ha of palm as part of pilot phase. Upon verification of fresh fruit bunch yields, this will be expanded to 20,000 Ha. Growth in West Africa: Zambeef expects strong growth in West Africa with new outlets due to open and the completion of the new pork processing plant in Lagos. Further opportunities exist to replicate the Zambian growth model in Nigeria, commencing with Zambeef leasing 500 acres North of Lagos to commence beef abattoir and poultry operations, the company says.

AIM LISTING Zambeef recently became the first Zambian company to list on London’s alternative investment market (AIM), raising US$55 million in total in conjunction with a domestic rights issue. It listed just weeks ago and the listing is seen as an indication that local companies have the potential to penetrate the international market – Kopulande told our researcher that it is a sign that Zambia has an ability to penetrate more international markets. 12

The acquisition of ETC Bio-energy Limited will lead to Zambeef controlling almost 100,000 Ha of farmland in Zambia

“We are becoming a more global business, yes,” he said. The US$55 million raised via a listing on AIM will be used to bankroll the acquisition of ETC Bio-energy Limited, which the firm bought at US$45 million in a transaction completed in June. According Kopulande, the acquisition of ETC Bio-energy Limited will lead to Zambeef controlling almost 100,000 Ha of farmland in Zambia. The three farms which form the deal – Nampamba, Chambatata and Kampemba Farms on the Zambian Copperbelt – extend over a total of more than 46,000 Ha.

“These assets will provide the Group with the agricultural throughput for its processing operations which the board believes should generate additional value and higher margin whilst reducing impact of the volatility of commodity price fluctuations and an erratic supply chain on the Group,” CEO Francis Grogan said in a statement following the firm’s AIM listing. He added that Zambeef Group had raised US$54.97 million in aggregate by way of both a rights issue of 33,558,580 new ordinary shares to existing investors via Lusaka Stock Exchange (LuSE). “We are delighted that the AIM flotation has been completed successfully and with such high investor demand for Zambeef shares,” Grogan, who is also co-founder of Zambeef,

said. “We now look forward to working with our new and existing shareholders whom we would like to thank for their ongoing support as we continue to grow and expand. “The growing demand for agricultural products and consumer goods in sub-Saharan Africa together with the increasingly stable political climate in the countries in which we operate creates an exciting platform on which Zambeef can thrive.” Zambeef’s goal is to increase efficiency and capacity in its primary production facilities, ensuring it remains a low cost protein producer in the region. It also wants to expand its retail and wholesale distribution channels in order to “increase market penetration in the region”. To learn more visit www.zambeefplc.com.END
