Landwirtschaft Afrika - CHB Group, img.2


Africa is a fascinating continent and offers a wide range of opportunities for investment. Its potential is characterized by a young and growing population and by the wealth of natural resources. In addition to breathtaking landscapes and a well-developed tourism sector, there are great opportunities in agriculture, food processing, as well as energy production. In the field of mining and processing of critical minerals, there are many industrial sectors that are dependent on these raw materials, especially within the economic transformation.

Through the many years of activity of its founder, Carl Heinrich Bruhn, the CHB Group is ideally positioned in Africa. It not only has a wealth of experience in the planning and implementation of projects, but also an excellent network of decision-makers in business and politics.

The CHB Group concentrates on investments in the business areas of agriculture, energy and critical raw materials. The company is supported by an experienced advisory board.


Since 2011, Carl Heinrich Bruhn as founder and CEO of Amatheon Agri Holding N.V. has established a sustainable agri-business in sub-Saharan Africa over the last 10 years which employs several hundred permanent staff members and up to 1,000 seasonal workers. At agricultural production sites in Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, crops such as wheat,  and rice as well as high-value spices such as peppers and chilies are produced. Storage capacities and processing facilities enable the company to distribute its products to customers both locally and internationally. Since inception, Amatheon’s business model involves not only the development of commercial farming operations but also the inclusion of Africa’s rural population. Over the years, a network of more than 4,000 smallholder farmers in Zambia and Uganda has contributed to the company’s entire value chain with sustainable production. Through the integration of the Real Meat Africa Group, Amatheon Agri has also been active in the meat production sector since 2015. The expansion of activities into other countries in Africa is planned.
