Comprising a network of 15 manufacturing sites situated across South Africa, this vertically integrated business manufactures a wide range of licensed products for both our franchise network as well as selected food service and retail customers.
As the largest branded food service franchisor in Africa, our operations span the entire supply chain from raw materials through to finished goods. This manufacturing capability extends to a wide range of products, including meat and chicken, bread and bakery items, coffee, cheese, sauces and spices, ice cream and fruit juice.
Our Logistics division represents the group’s route-to-market, delivering to the franchise network a comprehensive basket of products required to cater for brand-specific menus. The logistics function affords a key strategic and competitive advantage to the group in terms of its overall support to our franchise system.
The group’s Centre’s of Excellence enable us to get closer to our franchise partners by aligning our franchising and logistics businesses. The Centre’s are designed to deliver an optimal service to our franchise partners. Our total warehousing space consists of more than 20,000m² under roof and an average of 1,600 line items are held in our warehouses at any one time. Our fleet has grown to number 117 trucks.
The core thrust of this business is the forward integration of the group’s trademarks into the FMCG retail and wholesale markets. Our brands’ retail products are stocked in supermarket chains such as Pick n Pay, Makro, Spar and Checkers.
Where additional manufacturing capacity exists to do so, this business also supplies selected food service and catering customers.
The brands through which we compete in the retail and food services space include:
* Mugg & Bean
* Aqua Monte
Group Procurement is Famous Brands’ central service provider to all our franchise, manufacturing and logistics business units. Here we source only the best quality products at the lowest possible prices. This includes dry goods, perishables and packaging.
It’s through Group Procurement that we ensure our brands deliver on what their customers expect.
To enable us to do this, we need to build and maintain supplier relationships. Our partners who help us to achieve franchise partner customer loyalty by meeting our KPI’s are the relationships we value and acknowledge.
We encourage ethical behavior in the workplace, and adhere to a strict Gifting and Hospitality policy.
