Rhodes Food Group (RFG) is an internationally recognised producer of convenience meal solutions for customers throughout South Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and in major global markets.
Based in Groot Drakenstein in the Western Cape, South Africa, RFG has a well-capitalised production base comprising 14 manufacturing facilities across South Africa and a fruit processing facility in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland). All operations are well-located close to sources of raw materials and end markets.
The product range includes canned fruit, jam, vegetable and meat products, bottled salads, fruit juices, fruit purees and concentrates, dry packed foods, fresh and frozen ready meals, pastry-based products and dairy products.
The group’s growing portfolio of market-leading brands, including the 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 one or significant number two positions in most targeted product categories and have experienced strong market share growth in recent years.
The group has been producing 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.
More than a century after it was founded, Rhodes Food Group listed on the JSE Limited in October 2014, marking a new chapter of growth in its proud history. Since its listing the group has concluded nine strategic acquisitions to strengthen its positioning as a leading, diversified food producer serving multiple markets across the world.
