The Sovereign Story

Serving South Africa since 1948.

Sovereign Foods began as a family business in the Eastern Cape’s Rocklands Valley and has grown to become a fully-integrated poultry operation renowned throughout South Africa. Still firmly tied to our local roots, we are proud to be considered one of the region’s success stories. And with our new operation in Hartbeespoort, we have expanded our national footprint and positively impacted communities along the way.

Our dedication to producing world-class poultry products has been recognised and rewarded with Proudly South African accreditation; a prestigious honour, and industry first. After serving the country for more than half a century, we thank you for choosing our outstanding poultry that is South African through and through.
