NERPO Investments Limited (NerVest) is a public company established by the members of the Association in July 1998 with the intent to promote and gain access as an Emerging Black Company to the Commercial Red Meat Industry. NERPO establishment was one of the most important developments in the South African Red Meat Industry as the pioneers were the beleaguered black farmers who felt the need to build their capacity in the entire Red Meat and related industries.

NerVest was also established to take advantage of the Government supportive policy environment which recognizes the crucial role that black farmers should play in their respective industries in order to enhance the market economy which requires the active and meaningful participation of the previously disadvantaged communities.
