In a letter addressed to all staff, Arnold Prinsloo (Eskort CEO) stated "Over the past 98 years we have strived to produce a quality range of products that satisfy the multi segments of South African consumers. We have built a formidable brand over these years and have plans in place to grow rapidly in the years to come".

He continued to express particular excitement about the performance and growth of the Value Added Fresh Meat category and the expansion of the Retail Division with the opening of the Eskort Butchery in Mbombela (Nelspruit).

He then thanked all staff members for being so passionate about the ESKORT brand and for building such a great company and concluded with a "Happy Birthday ESKORT"!

In related activity, Jolandie Louwies (Eskort Brand Manager) and Ingrid Lourens (PA to Eskort CEO) brought food and warm cheer to the children of Ditshego Pre-School in Olievenhoutbosch to assist in the Feed A Child mission to feed 3000 children in 67 minutes.

The magnificent new Eskort Butchery Mbombela opening on 1 July 2015 was met with great enthusiasm by the residents of Mpumalanga. The biggest and best Eskort Butchery to date is situated at the Riverside Junction (previously Value Mart) on the busy Madiba Drive (R40) in Mbombela (previously Nelspruit). Eskort Butchery is the first of the FOODHUB factory shops to open with others due to follow as soon as the relocation of non-food outlets in the centre has been completed.

Redefining the Modern Piggery

Crate Free refers to the housing management and welfare of pigs, who are generally kept in gestation crates. Spitskop is a first-of-its-kind farm in South Africa, where sows live without gestation crate confinement, but roam around in groups for their full length of their pregnancy (16 weeks). 

The idea for the Crate Free farm started in 2010, when the Braak family looked at the animal welfare standards in Europe, especially Netherlands.  The vision for Spitskop is for the farm to compete and meet global standards.
