The company’s historical ability to innovate by identifying sustainable markets and  value added services, coupled with expanding its Southern African footprint has

provided a growing and stable platform for the business to achieve its growth ambitions.  Lluvia participates in the SACU, SADC and COMESA countries whether it be procuring  or marketing locally sourced or imported products from abroad. These relationships are  integral to provide long term sustainability to the business as it gives Lluvia the ability to  procure sugar efficiently in any market condition. This is an extremely significant and key  differentiator to the other trading and distribution businesses in the market.

Best Choice Retail

The growing brand is primed to diversify into Rice and other dry commodities as  the manufacturing plant, food safety certifications, logistics, and well established  client book is in place and geared to be leveraged against. The group has the  ambition to replicate the Best Choice model and brand across Southern Africa  and capitalism on the multiple opportunities to make local investments down  the value chain.

The Namibian business  continues to gain significant market share in both segments and has cemented its  position as one of the three largest sugar distributors in the country. There are short  term ambitions to diversify the operation to start distributing rice.

Lluvia International

Lluvia International was established in May 2018 as the international trading division  of the group with extensive experience on the COMESA, SADC and EU sugar flows.  The business is head officed in Mauritius and the main objective of this entity is to  trade in preferential and specialty sugars where there are strategic allocations under  quota and bilateral country agreements. The trades require specific knowledge in  domestic markets and typically provide higher returns due to the benefit of group  quotas from desired origins.
