The National Chamber of Milling (NCM) is a non-profit organisation representing the South African wheat and maize milling industry for human consumption. The industry prides itself with a role it plays in the society by ensuring adequate supply of high quality, nutritious and safe basic foodstuff, thereby contributing significantly towards national Food Security imperatives.
Membership is voluntary and currently comprised of ordinary members actively and directly involved in commercial wheat and white maize milling. Associate members, which mainly comprise industry suppliers, also play an important part in the Association. These include businesses such as plant and equipment manufacturers, fortification mix suppliers, grain storage and traders, financiers, local and international partners, packaging suppliers, etc.
NCM is governed by the Board of Directors from member companies nominated and appointed at the AGM every year. The Chairperson and Vice are also elected and appointed every year, normally for a term or two for continuity. The Committee structures (Technical & Regulatory Affairs, Procurement & Trade as well as Training) are appointed to address specific areas of activity and are the main mechanism to drive industry specific issues of members’ interest.
NCM has established itself as a reputable industry mouth-piece that addresses members’ best interests and needs by:
The 85th NCM AGM was scheduled to be hosted on 11th & 12th March 2021. The NCM Board evaluated the risks associated with the existing environment and resolved not to arrange the event as usual given the extent of uncertainties. Under the circumstances, it has resolved to keep other event activities in abeyance and only arrange an interactive AGM & Close Session on 11th March 2021 to deal with governance issues.
The normal AGM event structure is expected to resume once the pandemic is under control and not posing risks to human health or lives – hopefully in 2022. The Chamber is regretful of any inconvenience caused by the prevailing unpredictable environment.
