WORLD CLASS PRODUCTION FACILITY
Our DC Meat Production facility is based in Paarl, Western Cape. This is where we produce our range of flavourful, high quality cold meats, patties and sausages. Products are manufactured in various machines giving a unique flavour to each of our DC product ranges.
The production facility has three large cold rooms to hold raw products. We also have a large cooking room to move product swiftly through the factory.
To ensure our products are always top quality, each production line has their own Quality Controller to oversee the manufacturing of each product. Each department has two supervisors to oversee the flow of product on the casing lines.
We have 320 staff members working in our production facility, and have all been through our in-house DC Training and Development Programme.
To ensure all the goodness of our meat is sealed in, our products are vacuumed in our Rollstock machines. We package meat into a range of quantities and sizes, making sure we cater for all of our clients’ needs - from 200g packs to 5Kg bulk packs .Cleanliness and quality is ensured by our highly trained staff
Two Supervisors oversee the work of our staff, and two Quality Controllers make sure that each product is checked and labelled correctly. Our high-risk area is well maintained and kept clean by the head of our Quality Controller at all times.
