Rhodes Food Group is an internationally recognised producer of convenience meal solutions for distribution in Southern African and major global markets.

Rhodes has a growing portfolio of strong brands, including Rhodes, Magpie, Bull Brand, Hazeldene, Portobello and Trout Hall. These brands are complemented by private label product ranges prepared for selected domestic and international retailers.
“The listing on the JSE will accelerate our Group’s organic and acquisitive growth strategy, and unlock new business opportunities,” says Bruce Henderson, CEO of Rhodes Food Group Holdings.

Henderson says the listing will also enable the Group to increase its investment in expanding production capacity and efficiency at its facilities in South Africa and Swaziland.
“The JSE is delighted to welcome Rhodes Food Group to our market.
