Java Foods Limited is a private company that strives to achieve its objectives through excellence and by complying with legislation, regulations, and best practices in the jurisdictions where it operates its businesses. Java Foods believes that sound Corporate Governance principles play an integral role in enhancing the Company’s performance and in providing risk management thus promoting investor confidence and enhancing shareholder value. In 2018, Java Foods entered into a shareholder agreement and brought in two new equity partners to help support expansion plans. DSM Venture Partners (the venture capital arm of DSM) and Adolf H. Lundin Charitable Foundation (a social impact fund owned by the Lundin Family) were welcomed as shareholders. Both DSM Venture Partners and AHLCF have provided Java Foods with critical technical and financial support for Java Foods’ next stage of expansion. Both shareholders are now represented on the Company’s board of directors.
The Java Board of Directors is led by an independent non-executive Chairman with vast commercial, financial, strategy and business experience in Zambia and in the region. Our board of directors has been very instrumental in driving the business forward while keeping operations under prudent control.
