Consumer Goods: Personal Care & Medical Devices 

Since the commencement of trading, CNDB has exported South African manufactured personal care and medical devices to West Africa.

We conduct extensive market research, identify reputable and effective local distribution partners, develop long term relationships and invest in brand development in the new markets. We work towards improving supply chain efficiencies, order consistency and growth with our suppliers, and collaborate with our customers on working capital management and enhancing market competitiveness.    

We deliver a quality product to our end consumers and register the brands with local quality standards authorities.     

Our long term vision entails:

  • meeting consumer requirements (product quality, price point and efficacy),
  • achieving an optimal and relevant mix of third party and proprietary brands,
  • sustainably developing brands with a long term focus, and
  • achieving full coverage of the key urban clusters on the continent.

Agricultural Commodities 

During 2016 CNDB diversified into trading select SAFEX listed and unlisted products, including (and not limited to) maize, wheat, sunflower, soya, hominy chop, lucerene, sorghum, maize meal, herbs, spices and seasonings, edible oils, oil cakes, pulses and livestock. 

Subject to clients’ requirements, and market supply and demand dynamics, we can source product locally or import, arrange the logistics and deliver directly to premises. Present and potential customers include leading food manufacturers, animal feed manufacturers and others. Relationships, price, quality and reliability are the primary focus. 

We source only from reputable and quality suppliers, and where required could provide the relevant quality standards certifications (eg V registration certificate, registration under Act 36 of 1947, SSF classification etc). We seek to secure supply stock (volumes, quality and pricing basis) through strategic long term supply relationships with farmers, silo owners, millers, crushers and other suppliers in order to ensure reliable delivery.

We have relationships with some of the the leading logistics operators and cargo insurers.
