One of South Africa’s leading food companies, Pioneer Foods, is making its mark in the United Kingdom with the official opening of its new Bokomo UK facility in Orton Southgate, England. Situated less than two kilometres from the previous Bokomo UK factory, the new facility has been built from scratch and was designed specifically to fit the requirements of a breakfast cereal business.

“This new facility allows us to significantly increase our capacity as we continue to produce the popular and high quality Granola, Crunch, Crisp, Muesli and Porridge breakfast cereals for which Bokomo UK is synonymous for,” comments John Hiles, chief executive of Bokomo UK.  “Of all the new features that the new facility offers, the potential to further expand our operation is perhaps the most exciting.”

He adds: “With enhanced capacity as a result of focused production lines and world class packing capabilities, the business has space to grow and drive further value for the Pioneer Group’s UK operations in Bokomo UK’s new home.”

Construction on the modern facility was completed in May 2016. The old facility had reached capacity and restricted Pioneer International’s growth ambitions.

The new Pioneer Foods Bokomo UK facility, will continue to boost the manufacturer’s positive growth trajectory – supplying healthy, tasty and cost effective breakfast cereals to the UK and rest of world markets.

Pioneer Foods operates in South Africa and two other African countries and sells its products around the world. The group’s core business is the production, distribution, marketing and selling of a diverse range of food, beverages and related products. The Group in its current form (after the merger between SASKO and Bokomo) was established in 1997 and listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in 2008. The Pioneer Foods brand portfolio includes trusted names like Weet-Bix, Liqui-Fruit, Ceres, SASKO, Safari, Spekko and White Star.
