Brito’s Group is a vertically integrated company, which strives to offer its retail and wholesale clients optimal value through controlling its entire supply chain – from the importing of raw materials to the retailing of the finished product directly to the end consumer.


Brito’s would like to assure our customers that all of our products are manufactured in our own FSSC 22000 certified production facility and that the current outbreak is not related in any way to our brand, facilities or products.

The Brito’s processing plant is subject to stringent and regular audits to ensure that the highest food safety standards are maintained. In this way, we are confident of offering only safe and quality products to our clients.

We are not affiliated to Enterprise or Rainbow and they do not provide any products or services to Brito’s.

We only use reputable suppliers for our cleaning chemicals, which are certified to be effective against the control of pathogens such as Listeria, E.coli and Salmonella.

We would like to emphasize and ensure our clients that our products are safe for human consumption and we will strive to continue our high hygiene standards and maintain accreditations along with increased microbial sampling to ensure our products and facilities are Listeria monocytogenes free.


Founded in 1989 by the owner and CEO, Mr. John de Brito da Silva, and later joined by his brother, Fernando da Silva, in 1993, the Brito’s Group of Companies has since evolved from a modest manufacturing operation to a leader in South African food distribution, manufacturing, and retail industry.

Brito’s Group’s headquarters are located in Cape Town, in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, and we operate from two manufacturing facilities: a 10 000 m2 premises situated in Kaymor Industria, Bellville, and a 25 000 m2 premises situated in Brackengate Industria, Brackenfell. The Brito’s Group has a current staff complement in excess of 900.

The Brito’s Group of Companies annually imports in excess of 100 000 mt of frozen poultry, mutton, beef, pork, venison, frozen vegetables, soya vegetable proteins, hog casings, pasta, and seafood.

Our import requirements are supplemented by the sourcing of an additional 30 000 mt of fresh beef, pork, lamb, poultry, and vegetables from our network of national producers.
