The EAC Group consists of two strategic businesses - Plumrose located in Venezuela, and the Santa Fe Group throughout Asia, the Middle East, Australia and Europe. Both businesses are wholly owned by EAC, but organised as independent groups, each with highly experienced, locally based management teams.
Plumrose has operated in Venezuela for more than 50 years, and today the company is the country's largest player within processed meat. The business owns and controls the entire value chain, from production of feedstuff, pig farms, slaughtering and meat processing to marketing, sales and nationwide chilled distribution. With strong brands such as Plumrose, Oscar Mayer and La Montserratina and a track-record of highly innovative product development, Plumrose has delivered a long history of growth and operating margins significantly above the industry average.

The business operates under the brands Santa Fe, WridgWays and Interdean - and through a global network of partners.
