Who we are
Our non SA businesses are based in Mauritius and Kenya. Both businesses commenced their lives as wrap around label plants, and have evolved over time to other label mediums and Food flexibles supplying into the Fish, Rice and Dairy markets. We employ around 100 people on these sites.
What we do
Our facilities primarily supply reel stock to our customer base, although we have pouching capability in Mauritius. We have solvent and UV flexo capability and due to the market development phase our presses are narrow web.
The markets served are the Indian Ocean and East African regions.
Which industries do we serve?
Our primary markets are Labels and Food FMCG, with a significant portion being supply into the beverage market. We are privileged to supply some of the largest FMCG multi-nationals and Local Heroes, such as:
o Tiger Brands
o Princess Tune
o John West Tuna
The manufacturing sites also provide us with wonderful supply chain services for trading products from our other businesses – such as Tea Sack material ex SA, Roof insulation ex SA, Cement bags ex SA, Shrink sleeves ex Mauritius for Kenya.
Fun fact about our sites
Of course despite Mauritius being one of our smaller businesses, EVERYONE sees this as a great strategic position – and wants to visit it. Reality is that Mauritius has a split personality – with little glamour when it comes to its residents lifestyles and places of work, and then the other side of it being the beauty of the tourist resorts.
Our Kenyan site is actually shared with two other business in which we have joint venture partners – Dilpack which supplies flower sleeves for export of fresh cut flowers into Europe, and Mapflex which supplies MAP packaging for fruit and vegetables, which again is exported to Europe.
