CEO Peter Staude said "After last year`s record earnings, these results are another step along a journey. Tongaat Hulett possesses the advantage of owning an unmatched mix of agri-processing and land assets which together with the ability to make things happen enables us to exploit a rapidly changing global agriculture, land, energy and trade environment. The profit from operations in the first half of 2007 was achieved in difficult conditions. We expect to deliver real growth in profit from operations for the full 2007 year."
