About CHC Commodities

CHC deals in commodities such as Maize, Wheat, Sorghum, Malting Barley, Groundnuts, Cassava and Soya Beans and provides a reliable and transparent price discovery system.

CHC Commodities has been involved in handling and transhipping large quantities of maize, corn soy blend (CSB), pulses and cooking oil on behalf of relief agencies and traders supplying maize for the relief effort.
CHC are founder broker members of the Zambia agricultural commodity exchange, ZAMACE and have been involved in the largest number of spot trades on ZAMACE at nearly 50% of the value of trades to date.
ZAMACE has the capacity to capture the vast majority of commercially traded grain in Zambia. CHC are 6% shareholders of ZAMACE.
CHC Commodities are the first warehouse operators to be certified by ZAMACE to issue ZAMACE warehouse receipts from its Lusaka and Kapiri Mposhi depots.
