Committed to empowering our people

Overberg Agri is committed to empowering our people, whether farm workers or personnel. We have therefore taken the initiative to create a vehicle, the Overberg Agri Development Trust, to do just that.

WHY THE TRUST?

Every business requiring a BEE certificate needs to adhere to the Codes of Good Practice of the Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment Act (Act 53 of 2003). To comply with the enterprise and socio-economic development elements thereof, a business has to contribute respectively 3% and 1% of its net income (after tax) for the development of Africans, Coloureds and Indians.

Funded by these contributions, the Trust serves as a platform to implement empowerment projects in an optimal and equitable way. At the same time, designated local communities can benefit from these projects.

Through the Trust, beneficiaries can also acquire economic exposure to investments.

FUNCTIONS OF THE TRUST

While complying with the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice, the Trust will:

  • pool and manage B-BBEE contributions,
  • identify socio-economic and enterprise development projects,
  • allocate funds to beneficiaries, and
  • manage all projects.

WHO MAY CONTRIBUTE?

Anyone who wishes to contribute to the Trust or needs a BEE certificate is encouraged to join forces with the Trust.

By combining contributions in a single pool, the Trust will be able to undertake more effective projects and make a more meaningful impact on beneficiaries.

WHO ARE THE BENEFICIARIES?

Beneficiaries must formally and individually be registered, and include Africans, Coloureds and Indians who have been permanently employed for at least 3 yearsby:

  • the Overberg Agri Group of companies, or
  • eligible customers of Overberg Agri Bedrywe.

ARE YOU AN ELIGIBLE CUSTOMER?

You are an eligible customer of Overberg Agri Bedrywe if you are engaged in primary agriculture and

  • do business with Overberg Agri Bedrywe, and
  • have a finance agreement with Overberg Agri Bedrywe.

HOW TO REGISTER BENEFICIARIES

More information and registration forms are available on Overberg Agri's website at www.overbergagri.co.za or contact Annmarie Steyn on tel 028 214 3800 or e-mail annmaries@overbergagri.co.za.
