The founder of the ClemenGold Foundation, ANB Investments, represents a diversified and vertically integrated agricultural enterprise with a particular focus on the citrus industry. Spanning the entire value chain from the management of intellectual property relating to new cultivars, to plant production, farming and packing, and branding and marketing, the Group has established itself as a market leader through its focus on innovation, people, and the delivery of consistent, superior quality products. Its most successful global fruit brand, ClemenGold mandarins, lends its name to the Foundation.
The ANB Group’s history shows a journey of being proactively involved in partnering with communities that have been beneficiaries of the land reform process in South Africa, and of reaching out and offering practical and life-changing assistance to the communities surrounding its operations. In each individual company a Corporate Social Investment champion drives their CSI activities – and continues to do so. However, with the rapid growth of the Group it was decided to formalise and potentiate their continued and expanding Corporate Social Investment footprint through the ClemenGold Foundation (founded in 2020).

Charitable giving, to me, is about paying it forward, giving without expecting any return, no adulation or recognition, just lending a helping hand to those in need with compassion and love. Its humanity’s ways of expressing our “ubuntu”, and the African concept of “it takes a village to raise a child”, by creating that village for those unfortunate.
