About us

Our Boards

TFG operates with two boards of directors. The supervisory board is ultimately accountable for the strategy, direction, leadership, governance, and performance of TFG. It has oversight of the development, approval, and updating of TFG’s vision, mission and value statements, and significant policies and goals related to economic, environmental, and social impacts. The operating board is responsible for the group’s strategy formulation and daily operations of the retail trading and services divisions.
