Acorn Agri & Food

Acorn incorporated an investment holding company called Acorn Agri (Pty) Ltd in February 2014 and acquired a 23% stake in Overberg Agri (Pty) Ltd, a diversified regional agri business, for R200 million. Further acquisitions soon followed and in May 2018 Acorn Agri (Pty) Ltd merged with Overberg Agri Ltd to form Acorn Agri & Food Ltd.

  • Vision: To be the operating and investment partner of choice in the agri & food value chain that creates a legacy of longterm sustainable value for all stakeholders.
  • Primary Focus: To participate in the consolidation and growth in the Southern African agri & food sectors.

This is achieved by acquiring significant stakes in strategic agri & food businesses to create a diversified portfolio by geography, commodity and type. By acquiring best of breed businesses in critical sectors, the company creates pockets of excellence ensuring sustainable growth for all its stakeholders.

Acorn Agri & Food is managed by Acorn Private Equity, which is also a significant shareholder in the company, and is looking for new investment opportunities to grow its portfolio of assets. All interested parties are welcome to contact us for further details.
