RCL Foods, one of the largest food manufacturers in South Africa and home to many well known and much loved South African brands, including two leading animal feed brands, Epol and Molatek, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Driehoek Feeds, effective 2 July 2018. The acquisition will see the Animal Feed portfolio of brands expand to include Driehoek and Equus.
Driehoek is an established feed brand in the game and ruminant feed industries, while Equus is well established in the horse market. The Driehoek facility, located in Vaalwater (Limpopo), near the game market, cattle farms and informal broiler markets of Limpopo and Mpumalanga, also provides RCL Foods Animal Feed with a high-roughage milling capacity and proximity to raw materials.
Says Wouter de Wet, Business Unit director: Animal Feed Business: “Although we are now in the midst of the transition and integration phase, this will not impact on the service you have come to expect from RCL Foods. I believe the main benefit to our customers will be a broader high- and low-roughage product range across all species and a wider price spectrum.” – Press release
