DAS History

The company was founded in 1993 by the current managing director, Sarel du Toit, who obtained a BSc and later his MBA degree. He started his work career in 1981 as a technical representative for a prominent feed company. Original activities consisted of doing formulation work for feed manufacturers, together with other consulting work within the feed and agri-business environment. This lead to him founding Feedmaster, the leading feed manufacturing company in Namibia today.   
After 8 years as managing director he sold his interest and moved to the Western Cape where Du Toit Agri Services was founded. Du Toit Agri Services subsequently became DAS Commodities in 2001. Since then, DAS Commodities has grown into a successful trading house with a diversified portfolio of interests.

DAS Commodities is based in Stellenbosch and focus on supplying the animal feed and fertilizer industries with a diversified range of quality products and services, aiming to play a definitive value-added role in any transaction.  This includes the sourcing or marketing of products together with providing logistical services.
