Business History: ACI founders come from an agricultural background. Their decent is rooted in the western Sudan region, Sudan 's largest agricultural farm belt. They were brought up with their hands dusted in the sand soil where the above-mentioned crops are cultivated and produced. Thus an early awareness of agriculture, and a deep-seated sense of social responsibility to work closely with agricultural producers towards an improved agricultural economy to benefit both producer and consumer societies; and an improved quality of life for all those involved in the supply and purchase chain.

Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) requirements are well taken care of. As part of its CSR commitment ACI ensures the best of practice with regard to honesty and quality in all supply contracts. ACI is committed to a set of values which are Integrity, Efficiency & Quality .
