Tiger Brands to re-open Germiston Value Added Meat Products
(VAMP) processing facility
After rigorous assessments of the factory were completed, the
Ekurhuleni Department of Health issued a Certificate of
Acceptability to the Company for the Germiston processing
facility. This endorses the factory’s standards and operating
procedures for the safe production of food products.
Production of ready-to-cook products, comprising bacon and
frozen sausages, is expected to commence on 12 October 2018.
Salami production will also commence on this date.
While such certification can only be awarded by local
authorities, the process was supported by the National
Department of Health.
The Clayville abattoir will supply the raw material
requirements for the Germiston facility as well as fresh meat
cuts. In addition, it will continue to contract slaughter on
behalf of approved pig suppliers.
The Enterprise meat canning operation, which is a separate
unit on the Polokwane site, re-commenced production on 12
September 2018. A Certificate of Acceptability for this
operation was issued by the Capricorn Municipality on 31
Structural refurbishments continue on the remaining units at
the Polokwane facility and are expected to be completed by
early November 2018, after which the Department of Health will
conduct its assessments.
