It is envisaged that NatFoods and Profeeds will each sell their respective stock feed manufacturing assets and lease immovable property to the new company African Feed Mills Private Limited. The new entity valued at more than $10 million is expected to maximize on efficiencies and strategically position itself for competition from Agrifoods and Blue Ribbon Industries. African Feed Mills will operate as a separate unit with Natfoods taking up a 40 percent stake in the new company and Profeeds the remainder.
