There is a demand for pork in South Africa

According to the country’s official website, South Africans consume 200, 000 tonnes of pork annually – wow, that’s a lot of pig! So, all supermarket owners and restauranteurs must ensure they always have enough quantities of high-quality pork products available for their customers.

Interestingly, only 0.5% of the world’s pork is produced in South Africa; the majority comes from import countries including “Germany, France, Spain, Canada, Brazil and the USA. [Some of the meat] is frozen and specially treated cuts like spareribs made up 60% of the imports,” the article states.

Support local

Van Wyngaardt is proudly South African, supplying locally sourced meat to supermarkets and the restaurant industry. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that all businesses need to support each other; it’s in your best interests financially and morally to buy local.

Our business specialises in selling wholesale pork meat online to the retail and restaurant and industries at highly competitive price points. By purchasing from local suppliers, who in turn source the meat from resident farmers, you are creating a mutual business relationship that has a positive effect in the market/value chain; essentially, you’re supporting other industries to rebuild their finances.

According to the South African Government’s ‘Profile of the Pork Value Market Chain’ in 2019, “The industry is estimated to employ about 3 105 workers, comprising about 2 300 at farm level.” That’s a significant number of people’s livelihoods you’re helping by buying from wholesale distributors that buy from local suppliers.

One of the areas in the marketing/value chain that is often overlooked is the input suppliers of pig feed. They are a vital link sitting at the beginning of the chain. You can see the extent of the ripple effect here.

According to the profile, “For the year 2017/18, 342 124 tons of pig feed have been sold which is an 11% growth from the year 2016\17. The feed for pigs mainly includes grains, fish meal, bran and premixes. The input suppliers sell the stock to primary producers and also to breeders; however, breeders still sell to the primary producers too.”
