Our mission is to be the driving force in the global trade for sesame seed, raw cashew nuts, dry edible pulses, and other specialties. We work directly with the farmers in the African subcontinent and provide healthy food choices to the global market. Our products are diligently sourced from the producers across our origins, custom processed to optimum standards at our specialized facilities throughout major producing areas. Sedaco takes pride in providing best in class quality control for product and processes, which reflects our commitment in trade across the globe. Our core products are naturally produced, low on water consumption, key to the development of rural economies in Africa and in case of pulses/legumes return nutrients to the soil.
Cefetra itself is part of BayWa Ag, a listed company, based in Munich. BayWa Ag, founded in 1920, has its roots in the German agricultural sector. The company has a dominant position in agriculture and agricultural machinery, renewable and classical energy, building materials, and global fruit and produce trade. This has resulted in a truly international footprint, including activities in the Gulf region and the African continent.
Sedaco has been founded with the backing of a well-resourced, very diverse and internationally active Group, which is keen to implement its strategy through companies that have similar focus and drive.
Prior to becoming part of the Cefetra Group, Sedaco’s commercial and management team accumulated many years of industry knowledge, in several industry leading companies. More recently, Sedaco core staff, including key staff in the Sedaco sourcing countries, had worked together as a group.
