The entities under the Waitonui Group include Waitonui Milltrust Agricultural Holdings Limited Partnership, Waitonui Milltrust Agricultural Holdings Farm Management Limited Partnership, Waitonui Milltrust Agricultural Holdings General Partner Limited, and Farm Management General Partner Limited.

Reports indicate that the group owes $36.5 million to its bank. Previously, United Kingdom-based asset manager Milltrust International was a significant stakeholder in the business. However, in a statement, Milltrust International clarified that they had divested from Waitonui Milltrust Agricultural Holdings in November 2021, selling their subsidiary, Milltrust Agricultural Investments (MAI), to Future Planet Capital.

The statement emphasized that despite the continued use of the Milltrust name, Milltrust International Group no longer holds any ownership or management responsibilities within Waitonui Milltrust Agricultural Holdings. The management and control of these entities were entirely transferred to new ownership following the 2021 transaction.

I recently wrote about a conference where the results of the joint project of the All-Ukrainian Agrarian Council (VAR) with the USAID AGRO Program were summarized. Today, as a result of this event, the All-Ukrainian Agrarian Council, on behalf of the agrarians affected by the war, appealed to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine with a request to support the agricultural sector in the occupied and frontline regions.
