The Board plays a key role in formulating, enabling and monitoring strategy of the Group, giving particular emphasis to driving growth as well as to the positioning of the Group taking in to account the forces shaping the business environment, globally and locally.

 

Encouraged by the progress achieved, we have chartered a new trajectory for growth which is multifaceted, building on the Group’s core competencies and considerable strengths developed over five decades. The new strategies formulated entrenched the Group presence in the agriculture & livestock, healthcare and consumer sectors. Transformation of our identity, strengthening Board Sub-committees and enhancing key management processes are the prominent strategy enablers initiated by the Board.

 

In order to strengthen CIC’s true identity as a well-diversified conglomerate we have modified and rearranged the Group structure into five clear business segments ( Agri Produce, Health and Personal Care, Livestock Solutions, Industrial Solutions,  and Crop Solutions) in order to enhance group synergies and to facilitate a sharper focus on potential areas of high growth. As part of the same process, we have also re-defined our corporate vision and mission statement.

 

The new structure enables each business segment to have its own identity and brands for individual product lines with a higher level of visibility for the individual brands. The brands will be discrete, each one holding a distinct promise of quality and value for the end user. The identity of your company, CIC Holdings PLC, will emerge as a stable and well diversified conglomerate on the move, with businesses that are leading players in their respective sectors.

 

 The new dynamic corporate logo unveiled too reflects two concepts that are intertwined in the green and blue “starburst” symbol. Convergence of purpose among all of CIC’s business portfolios to “Nurturing Life” and the central focus on driving performance is reflected by the inward movement of the starburst. The outward movement reflects delivery of value to stakeholders by the respective business sectors. We are convinced that the new framework provides a unified platform for better focus and improved brand applications, leading to delivery of sustained, profitable and competitive growth as a powerful diversified conglomerate.
