The retail landscape in South Africa has changed in recent years and there is a resurgence in the informal trade sector. The influence of foreign traders in this space, and accessibility in these markets, has driven growth. They stock a full range of products offered at competitive pricing relative to the major retailers in these areas.
We believe our strong relationships with retailers in the modern, informal, convenience and forecourt trades across Southern Africa puts us at the top of our game.
Recognising the growth of the informal trade sector, we set up contracts with various distributors who have the expertise to sell into these markets, as well as deliver products straight to their doors.
Our expansion into the informal sector has seen our footprint grow across Africa while we continue to service forecourts and other convenience outlets.
