A wholesale distribution company specialising in fresh and frozen fish, seafood, chicken, vegetables and other fine foods.
Robberg Fine Foods is a wholesale distribution company situated in the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay on the South East coast of South Africa, 500km East of Cape Town and 250km South West of Port Elizabeth. We are involved in fishing, processing, exporting, importing, wholesale distribution. Other companies in the group also include two retails, refridgeration and air conditioning suppliers.
Although seafood has always been key to our business, Robberg Fine Foods also is a distributor of the following brands: McCains, Rainbow chicken, Red Bull, Lindt chocolate, Freys Meats, Meditteranean Delicasies, I&J, Lancewood, Staffords Quality Foods and many more.
In respect to providing employment within the local community, our philosophy has always been to endeavour to provide permanent jobs. Due to the seasonal nature of line fishing this has been a mammoth task. Even so, we have enjoyed an exceptionally good record of labour relations with very low staff turnover over the last few years. In fact many of our original staff are still with us today. This has been due to a good working relationship between management and staff in which ability and performance are the criteria for advancement. In house training has provided us with an excellent management team who have been promoted through the ranks. Our style of management is one of engendering team spirit in which all workers are valuable participants.
We are proud to note that our minimum wage currently exceeds our SETA requirements for similar position and companies. We work a 45 hour week, after three years service where normal leave is taken, we provide 4 weeks paid leave, a thirteenth cheque and a provident fund.
