OUR VALUES:

AFGRI Leadership

While operating as a private company in an unlisted environment would typically accommodate less stringent oversight, we feel it prudent to maintain the high level of corporate governance that AFGRI has adhered to and which would be expected of a public company. With this as a priority, the Board continues to operate with active committees and a strong board and executive team in place.
