We provide a fast, flexible service to fertiliser manufacturers and blenders. Our professional team strives to facilitate the best possible prices of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and assorted micro nutrients.

Soya Beans

Soya bean production is one of the fastest growing sectors of the South African agricultural industry as farmers have taken advantage of rising import prices to meet local crushing demands.


Our specialist chromium division works with producers in marketing and delivering chromium in all its forms. Our scope of work includes chromite ore, ferrochromium, metallic chromium or a chromium oxide.



At Alpha Zurich we provide a fast, efficient service at a competitive price.
