The AGM is set to receive and consider the financial statements for the financial year ended June, 30 2017.

Retiring directors, Zinona Koudounaris and Godfrey Gwainda, who retire by rotation and being eligible offer themselves for re-election.

The AGM will also seek to approve directors' fees for the financial year ended June 30, 2017.

Remuneration and re-appointment of Messrs - Ernst & Young as Auditors of the Company until the conclusion of the next Annual General Meeting will also be on the agenda.

The light industry firm owns National Foods, Colcom, Irvine's Zimbabwe, Bakers Inn, Natpak, Bedra Enterprises, Profeeds and Probrands.
