TONGAAT HULETT IS AN AGRICULTURE AND AGRI-PROCESSING BUSINESS, FOCUSING ON THE COMPLEMENTARY FEEDSTOCKS OF SUGARCANE AND MAIZE. THROUGH ITS SUGAR AND STARCH OPERATIONS, TONGAAT HULETT PRODUCES A RANGE OF REFINED CARBOHYDRATE PRODUCTS FROM SUGARCANE AND MAIZE, WITH MANY PRODUCTS BEING INTERCHANGEABLE.
Global sweetener markets continue to be dynamic and the business seeks to optimise its various market positions, leveraging off its current base
to maximise revenue from these products.
The business’s sugar operations are well placed
to benefit from the evolving dynamics of renewable electricity and ethanol in the SADC region. Its ongoing activities in agriculture have resulted in
the company having a substantial land portfolio
within the primary growth corridors of
KwaZulu-Natal with strong policy support for conversion at the appropriate time. A core element of Tongaat Hulett’s strategic vision is to maximise the value generated from the conversion of land in the portfolio by responding to key demand drivers, identifying its optimal end use for all stakeholders and the investment in developing the land platform, which underpins the pipeline of shovel-ready land. Value creation for all stakeholders through an all-inclusive approach to growth and development is a key focus area and Tongaat Hulett regards its constructive interfaces with governments and society to be significant.
