Local Investment

Thistlewood obtains most of the sun ripened fruits for its preserves from the local farmers growing their produce in the ideal fruit growing climate of the Kwazulu Natal Midlands.

Purpose-designed state of the art equipment is used in our factory. The implementation of a new packing line has been constructed to meet the ever growing demands.

Thistlewood has many loyal long term employees. We use the internationally recognised HACCP food safety system to control the processes, materials, staff and training. Our products are HALAAL certified.
