African Century Foods (ACF) is Sub-Sahara Africa’s largest aquaculture producer with tilapia farms in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Uganda. Its supply of affordable, high-quality fresh protein is important in countries facing challenges related to the availability and affordability of food supplies.
Norfund invested in ACF in 2013 and is a 30% shareholder in the company. Sustainable agri- and aquaculture in East and Southern Africa is among Norfund's strategic focus areas.
In 2016, African Century Foods and Nutreco’s subsidiary Skretting Zambia entered into a joint venture for the production, sale and distribution of tilapia feed. The joint venture will construct and operate the first dedicated aquaculture feed plant in Zambia.
