Since our entry into the collateral management industry, we have built an enviable reputation in the market because of our deep knowledge of the logistics and commodity value chains in Africa, as well as our expertise in commodity management and storage infrastructure.

CMI was established by the AFGRI Group in 2007 (with a 90-year-plus solid track record in commodity management). This gave a strong foundation to the business in terms of risk management and best practices, business culture and values, as well as experienced and knowledgeable people.

Due to a change in AFGRI’s business strategy to focus on South Africa only and exit all business in other countries throughout Africa, CMI was sold to the Managing Director and Founder, Pieter Steenkamp effective 1 April 2023. AFGRI remains a strategic partner and service supplier to CMI on key support services such as Human Resources and payroll management. CMI’s management team and staff members will always be proud of our heritage and roots from within AFGRI.

CMI’s core strategic focus is on collateral and storage management services throughout Africa and covering most commodities traded throughout the different value chains on the Africa continent. We also provide Stock Monitoring and Inspections services if required.

CMI’s Holding company is situated in Tamarin, Mauritius. We are governed under strict core values and Corporate Governance frameworks and pride ourselves for having skilled employees who operate with the utmost integrity.
