Silo Food Industries Limited is a company established in July 2018 to produce and distribute value-added agricultural products, food and livestock products. The Government, through a Cabinet resolution in May 2018, directed that all commercial activities of the GMB be separated from its core SGR functions. While the main function of the GMB is to ensure orderly marketing of agricultural products that include grains, oilseeds, edible beans and coffee in Zimbabwe by trading these crop commodities on the domestic market, prior to the separation of the core SGR operations from commercial operations, the GMB also undertook value addition and commercial trading activities through its stock feeds production, milling, packaging and distribution ventures.
Silo Food Industries Limited, was named after the well-established Silo brand. It started operations on April 1, 2019 after completion of the demerger. The Company’s mandate is to operate the commercial activities of GMB as defined in its mission statement. The Company’s major brands include Country Feeds and Silo branded products.
Currently, the Silo product range includes Silo mealie-meal (roller and super refined), rice, salt, small grain meal, jam, coffee, kapenta and flour. The stock feed range is housed under the “Country Feeds” brand and carries feeds for chickens, cattle (beef and dairy), dogs, horses and pigs.
