Sefalana Holdings Company Limited

Nature of Business

The Sefalana Group is involved in:

  • sales and distribution of fast moving consumer goods through its wholly owned subsidiary Dafin Sales & Distribution (Pty) Ltd;
  • sorghum milling and processing through its wholly owned subsidiary Foods Botswana (Pty) Ltd,
  • wholesaling through its substantial investment in Metro Sefalana Cash & Carry Limited; and
  • commercial and wholesaling property investments.

The distribution and sales operations are located in Gaborone, Francistown and Maun. In these outlets the group represents both local and international manufacturers distributing their products throughout Botswana.

The sorghum mill is based in Serowe, it produces sorghum meal and sorghum and soya based extruded products, malt and diastatic malt products.

Sefalana has, over the 27 years in which it has been trading in Botswana, as a listed company, acquired, both by necessity and desire, a very extensive property portfolio. The properties include commercial office buildings, manufacturing sites, warehousing facilities, wholesale outlets and residential properties. The majority of the properties are either used by Sefalana itself or leased to Metsef on long-term leases.

The Sefalana group is dedicated to being of service to its customers and to achieving profits for shareholders, whilst at the same time improving the material and personal well being of its employees and the people of Botswana.

History

Sefalana was the first company in Botswana to list its shares. This happened on 27 January 1975. At the time of listing Sefalana consisted of 6 wholesale stores and one maize mill. The group employed 233 people. The name Sefalana, meaning “The Bountiful Granary” was chosen by the late Mr MLA Kgasa, a well-known Motswana poet.

In November 1994 a decision was taken to merge the wholesaling interests of the group, then 12 wholesale stores, with Metcash and the merged entity, Metro Sefalana Cash and Carry Limited (Metsef) was formed. Metsef was listed on the Botswana Stock Exchange and its shares are currently held by Sefalana and Metcash with 40% each with the balance of 20% being held by the general public. Metsef now operates out of 23 outlets.

In November 1995 the maize milling operation of the group was merged with the wheat milling operation of Namib Management Services (Pty) Limited. This operation was operated in partnership until 28 April 2001 when Sefalana group disposed of its investment to the Namib group.
