Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that enabled people to live in cities.


Agribusiness is a broad concept that covers input suppliers, agro-processors, traders, exporters and retailers. Agribusiness provides inputs to farmers and connects them to consumers through the financing, handling, processing, storage, transportation, marketing and distribution of agro-industry products and can be decomposed further into four main groups:

  1. Agricultural input industry for increasing agricultural productivity, such as agricultural machinery, equipment and tools, fertilisers, pesticides, insecticides; irrigation systems and related equipment.
  2. Agro-industry: Food and beverages, tobacco products, leather and leather products, textile, footwear and garment, wood and wood products, rubber products, as well as construction industry products based on agricultural materials.
  3. Equipment for processing agricultural raw materials, including machinery, tools, storage facilities, cooling technology and spare parts.

4. Various services, financing, marketing and distribution firms, including storage, transport, ICTs, packaging materials and design for better marketing and distribution.

Announcement

signium block footer

It is with mixed feelings that we announce we are in the process of discussing the retirement of our
beloved and much appreciated Auguste (Gusti) Coetzer. Her retirement is well-earned and well-
deserved but we will miss her energy, commitment, hardwork, and unique sense of humour in the
office. There are many times when clients, candidates and colleagues have relied on her intelligence
and intuition to make important decisions and have emerged the better for it.

Gusti is known to many as the doyenne of executive search and she was instrumental in shaping the
industry in South Africa. Leaving the search world will not be entirely easy for Gusti because it was
her passion and she poured her heart and soul into not only identifying and growing talent within
the industry, but also going above and beyond to take care of each one of her clients and candidates.

In her own way, she has significantly contributed to the success of many South African businesses.

It is time to express our appreciation for the great friendships we have had with Gusti over the years
and to wish her well in the next chapter of her life. She leaves a proud legacy behind her and a team
of capable and competent partners at Signium Africa.

We always welcome engaging with our clients and candidates, so in Gusti’s absence, please feel free
to reach out to Mosima Selekisho, Annelize van Rensburg or Michelle Moss on Tel: 011 771 4800 or
info@signium.co.za to assist with your executive search and leadership consulting needs.
