History of the leading South African culinary company

In 2000, South Cape Caterers was launched to provide tailored food and beverage solutions to market leading industrial organisations seeking quality catering services. South Cape Caterers has been built on the philosophy that success is achieved through teamwork, dedication and hard work inspired by a vision of the future. It is this entrepreneurial spirit that pioneered the vision and birth of South Cape Caterers in March 2000 by Gregory Abrahams and Albertus Daniels.

Today South Cape Caterers is managed by a female director, supported by a more than 60% representation of women on the executive board, providing employment to previously disadvantage, disfranchised Africans. Its primary function is to provide though affordable, but delicious extravagant western as well as African meals. Since its inception, South Cape grew from being a small enterprise to a leading enterprise within the offshore culinary industry.

We have made significant advances, developing our core business significantly after somewhat slow growth between 2000 and 2004. Throughout our history, the company has been managed and directed forwards by leaders with this same strong entrepreneurial drive, building South Cape Caterers into what it is today – a leading brand trading with innovative differentiation in the food industry on two continents (Africa and Australia).

We currently offer products and services to our industrial catering clients which include mines, gas rigs, oil rigs and oil refineries.
