What Top Employers say about themselves

RCL FOODS is a leading African food producer in South Africa with a market capitalization of R16 billion, employing 20 479 people in operations across South Africa, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, and Zambia. We manufacture a wide range of branded and private label food products which we distribute through our own route to market supply chain specialist, Vector Logistics.

In line with our passion to provide more food to more people, more often, we have recently acquired a number of businesses with strong brands which have enabled us to diversify our offering and significantly enhance our reach. This has resulted in an expanded product range which extends from basic essentials to top-end added-value products.

Through our business units we manufacture and distribute a wide range of household brand names including Selati Sugar, Supreme Flour, Rainbow and Farmer Brown chicken, Pieman’s pies, Mageu Number 1, Sunbake bread, Nola mayonnaise, Yum Yum peanut butter, Ouma Rusks, Bobtail and Catmor pet food products, and the leading animal feed brands Epol and Molatek. We also offer a wide range of dedicated services to food service customers across South Africa and beyond our borders.

Our integrated structure allows for an enhanced category focus in our core businesses (chicken, sugar, grains and animal feed), while delivering into the rapidly growing area of added-value products (food partners, speciality, pies, grocery, baking, beverages and added value chicken). Our integrated outbound supply chain business is a key enabler in this enterprise, providing RCL FOODS as well as various third party customers with a fleet of more than 1 500 vehicles that distribute more than 60 million cases across South and Southern Africa each year.
