Meats that Make the Moment!


Despite the company’s humble beginnings in 1990, when operations only included small-scale distribution of sausages, Rica Meats has grown in leaps and bounds since establishing itself as meat processing factory and distributor in 1994 in Founders Hill, Johannesburg.

Rica Meats (Pty) Ltd is a fully integrated pork processing company supplying nutritious, high-quality processed meat products, primal cuts & carcasses, nationwide through trusted retailer stores. The factory produces large volumes of processed products each month and distributes these products to our clients through four provincial branches in the following areas: Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, George and Worcester.

Our inputs are procured from own piggeries, situated in Magaliesburg, Randfontein and Carletonville. Each piggery operates on a commercial scale with best-in-class genetics and the piggeries are independently inspected and audited on a regular basis to confirm our commitment to biosecurity, food safety, and animal welfare.

Rica Meats’ fully integrated value chain encompasses the entire process from the growing of livestock to slaughtering and deboning procedures at the abattoir to the processing of meat cuts with effective and on-time delivery of our products. The entire sales, marketing & distribution cycle is also managed internally, ensuring that the that top-quality pork products are delivered to customers.

Rica Meats forms part of the RussellStone Group, where further value is unlocked through synergies with various group companies from feed inputs through to marketing. The company’s award-winning product range is currently available in various stores throughout eight of the country’s nine provinces.
