ABOUT OUR CO-OP
The leading agricultural business in Africa.
Die Humansdorpse Landbou Koöperasie, trading as The Co-op, is a leading agricultural business based in South Africa. The business is founded on a strong value system and operating according to healthy economic principles. We deliver innovative and outstanding client services with the main objective to ensure the profitability of our producers on a sustainable basis.
The Co-op, with its head office in Humansdorp, is situated close to sought after seaside resorts like Jeffreys Bay and St Francis Bay and is approximately 90km from Port Elizabeth. We are currently operating in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Limpopo provinces and provide products and services to all farming disciplines.
The Co-op was established in 1944 and was originally created as a milling company to support local grain farmers, but has been referred to as The Co-op | Die Koöperasie since 2013 when its trademark was registered accordingly.
The Co-op employs expert technical staff, for example chartered accountants, nutritionists, agronomists, agricultural economists, irrigation engineers, among others and has a staff complement of more than 1 000 permanent employees. These expert services are made available to our members and customers/farmers to enhance the production capacity of their businesses.
For generations, The Co-op has been the one-stop-shop for its members and farmers – today our doors are also open for the general public and is the supplier of choice for the DIY enthusiast, weekend-gardener, renovator and pet lover.
