About 61% of our plantations are directly affected by land claims. A land Claims Division has been established to facilitate the resolution of all the land claims affecting SAFCOL operated land.
The mandate for the Land claims division is to facilitate the successful and timeous settlement of land claims, according to a mutually beneficial settlement model. SAFCOL will facilitate the settlement process by ensuring improvement on the research, verification, and gazetting of all valid land claims affecting its plantations.
We continue to build a good relationship with all affected parties, including claimant communities to ensure it becomes the partner of choice post-settlement.
