Sea Harvest “spreads” its “fins”...
After generating more than a billion rand in the past financial year, Saldanha-based company Sea Harvest has just “spread” its “fins” to the interior of SA after purchasing after Ladismith Cheese for R527 million in cash. The dairy producer which also makes butter and powdered milk, was owned by a number of family trusts in the Western Cape and had been doing business for more than 20 years and generating revenues of R681 million the past year.
This was Sea Harvest’s first venture into the interior, and believed Ladismith Cheese would be an ideal platform to build on in its sector through development and acquisition of additional dairy and allied beverage products. The dairy sector is expected to experience continued growing demand for cheese and butter in response to consumer dietary changes towards natural fat products.
The Ladismith products will continue to be sold under its brand.
