Agriculture and food supply services form an essential part of economic activity in Southern Africa and as such, the demand for a wide variety of agricultural products is almost permanently assured. At Eridunus, we invest in sustainable food production businesses to help grow the industry and ensure dependable food supply both locally and internationally. We do this by:

Obtaining a majority equity stake in niche private agricultural equities

Outperforming the market every financial year

Selecting farming equities that have proven their profitability over the past decade

Raising capital through our current agricultural division portfolio pipeline


We employ an extremely conservative approach to making investments, with all underlying investments insured against all reasonable, foreseeable risks, as well as secured through investments in various unit trusts.
