Mission of Garlic Man
Pedro’s Foods cc T/A Garlic Man was started on October 1999 when our founder saw an opportunity to provide a quality, affordable and easy to use alternative to a fresh product.
Our main goal has always been to satisfy a consumers’ need for Garlic and Garlic related products in such a way that they are confident in the product they are buying and its ability to satisfy their needs.
We source the finest raw materials both locally and abroad to enable us to provide a consistently excellent product.
We expanded our range to accommodate consumers’ needs and included variants that were not currently on the market.
Working together with retailers and consumers we have established a line of fast moving consumer goods available in a variety of packaging sizes to best suit the consumers varying needs, in doing so we have allowed ourselves to provide product to retailers, wholesalers, caterers, large chain stores as well as other manufacturers.
Our sales representative team offers a full sales and merchandising service to all customers.
As a company, we pride ourselves on keeping up with market trends as well as developing new products both within the Garlic Category as well as in other fast moving consumer goods categories.
Our innovative Garlic Man – Pure Crushed Squeeze Garlic is the first of its kind in South Africa. Combining the convenience of a squeeze bottle with the proven quality of Garlic Man Crushed Garlic products, Garlic Man – Pure Crushed Squeeze Garlic has proven to be a market leader and enjoys distribution throughout South Africa.
In 2017 we launched a range of potato chips under the brand name Garlic Man Chippies – Hand Crafted Crisps. Currently distributed throughout the Western Cape, with plans for national expansion in the near future, Garlic Man Chippies – Hand Crafted Crisps are sure to be a favourite snack choice for consumers who already know and trust our Garlic Man brand and the quality assurance it brings.
With plans in place for both regional as well as product expansion, we are excited about the future of the Garlic Man Brand.
