With geographic footprint over four continents, this division includes Bidcorp operations in Africa, South America, Asia and the Middle East. African operations manufacture and distribute meat, poultry, dairy and general food ingredients as well as baking ingredients and equipment and a multi-temperature foodservice offering of a full range of ambient, chilled and frozen food products. Asia and the Middle East distribute high-end speciality products into the western styled food market with supply exclusivity in many global brands. South America sources and distributes frozen, chilled and ambient local product into the independent street market across both Chile and Brazil.
While Bidcorp has grown into a substantial international business, it remains true to its South African heritage and the JSE listing is an exciting platform to share the next chapter in this success story. The focus as a standalone foodservice company will strengthen management’s determination to continue generating and enhancing sustainable, long-term returns for all stakeholders.
