OUR BUSINESS / COMMODITIES

We manage our supply chain with operations spanning in procurement, processing, warehousing, distribution and merchandising. By managing the supply chain from start to finish, Onyx is able to move agricultural commodities between regions, strategically matching one area’s market origination capabilities with market consumption patterns in another. Combined with the capacity to store commodities close to their point of origin for extended periods of time along with control over transport and logistics, the Group maximizes synergies and efficiencies at every stage of the value chain continuum.

With the benefit of thirty years’ experience in Africa, Onyx is expanding its proven knowledge and supply chain model into other fast growing regions. Our focus is to continue growing synergies, entrench presence and deepen the value chain through increasing processing initiatives.

With a supply chain linking the world’s fastest growing emerging markets and a sound understanding of how to succeed in those markets, Onyx is well positioned to meet a future that sees dramatic changes in the nature of global agri-business.

PRODUCTS
Rice
Rice is the staple food for over half of the world’s population and is the world’s most consumed cereal after wheat. It provides more than 50 percent of the daily calories ingested by more than half of the world’s population. Not only has rice been of great importance in the past, but its value and use remains considerable even today. Rice is the most rapidly growing source of food in Africa, and is of significant importance to food security in an increasing number of low-income food-deficit countries.

Due to our export operations in West Africa we operate a network of warehouses across Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Gambia and Mali. These warehouses were not fully utilized during the export off season, which encouraged us to look at ways of fully utilizing our facilities more efficiently. Importation, storage and distribution of rice gave us a way of doing this and it has led us to become a major player in the region. The network of warehouses well beyond the major cities, allows us to have an extended reach which extends further than most importers.This also allows us to market the rice through our own distribution channels.

We participate in the entire value chain from sourcing, shipping and logistics management to marketing and distribution, placing significant emphasis on the quality of the rice. Our shipping department enables us to guarantee timely and cost effective delivery of rice to our customers. Onyxgulf’spolicy of setting up distribution networks in the destination markets, coupled with selective backward integration into logistics and origination provides us with a strong foundation to grow our business and remain competitive.

Onyx also participates in numerous government tenders worldwide, allowing us to shift significant quantities of rice, which helps us to reduce our bottom line.

We are currently serving the following markets - Senegal, Guinea Bissau, UAE, Oman, Sri Lanka, Seychelles
