Little Karoo. Big thinking.
Based in picturesque Montagu in the hot, dry fruit-growing region of the Little Karoo, Montagu Foods evolved from an established family farming business. It now produces and markets a wide range of wet condiments, including chutney, sweet-chilli sauce and salad dressing, under private label for all major retailers.

The family traditions of the Karoo run deep into our culture of togetherness in South Africa. The wide open spaces, cold winters and spectacular summers have created a unique way of doing things. Big thinking combined with homespun values have made Montagu what it is today.
This company evolved from a well-established family farming business that, initially, concerned itself with the production of wine grapes, fruit for canning and dried fruit on the farm ‘Little Oaks’. But the company’s ongoing success stemmed from the sale of premium quality South African chutneys. Today, Montagu Foods has broadened its repertoire from traditional apricot and peach chutneys to include popular exotic variants such as pineapple and mango.
In addition to chutney, Montagu Foods’ hi-tech factory has also responded to demand from retailers for other wet condiments, such as sweet-chilli sauce, tomato sauce and salad dressings, produced for private-label customers. Raw materials are sourced from the local region, and the plant’s modern technology makes it possible for sterilised bottles to be filled, capped, tamper-proof-sealed and date-stamped, ready for packing on a single, steady line of production.
“Montagu Foods’s turnover has grown by 970% from 2007 to 2017 to become the biggest private label supplier for South Africa in the wet condiment category.”Richelieu van Schalkwyk, Montagu Foods
