Market-Leading Brand Portfolio
The Group’s growing portfolio of market leading brands, including its flagship Rhodes brand and the iconic Bull Brand, is complemented by premium private label product ranges packed for major South African and international retailers. The Group's own brands occupy the number 1 or significant number 2 positions in most targeted product categories.
More Than a Century of Growth
The Group has been in fresh deciduous fruit, canned fruit products and jams since 1896. In 1999, the business was acquired by the shareholders of Swaziland Fruit Canners and renamed Rhodes Food Group. Over the next decade, the Group entered several new product categories through the numerous acquisitions, including Magpie and Sunpie, Giants Canning and Bull Brand.
More than a century after it was founded, Rhodes Food Group listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in October 2014, marking a new chapter of growth in its proud history. Within its first two years on the Exchange, the Group concluded six strategic acquisitions to further strengthen its positioning as a leading, diversified food producer serving multiple markets across all continents.
