What We Do
Zambeef is one of the largest agri-businesses in Zambia.
The Group is principally involved in the production, processing, distribution and retailing of beef, chicken, pork, milk, dairy products, eggs, edible oils, stock feed, flour and bread. The Group also has large row cropping (principally maize, soya beans and wheat) operations, with approximately 5,000 Ha of row crops under irrigation and 1,500 Ha of rain-fed/dry-land crops available for planting each year. The Group is also in the process of rolling out its West Africa expansion in Nigeria and Ghana, in conjunction with Shoprite, as well as a palm project within Zambia.
The Company was incorporated in June 1994 and listed on the LuSE in February 2003. Since its incorporation as a small scale start-up business, the Group has, through organic and acquisitive growth, become one of Zambia’s largest agri-businesses with annual revenues of ZMK770.5 billion (approximately US$162 million) for the financial year ended 30 September 2010.

In addition, the Group has seven of its own fast food outlets under the brand “Zamchick Inn”.
