About IFFCO South Africa
IFFCO identified an opportunity in the South African FMCG market for good quality consumer goods at affordable prices and decided to launch as a comprehensive, fully-fledged business. IFFCO South Africa (SA) was established in October 2010 as a private company and Lauren Siebrits was appointed CEO. The local IFFCO office has since been assigned with introducing and distributing the Tiffany range of biscuits, chocolates and confectionary. Tiffany is IFFCO's flagship brand of impulse foods and while it has been available at Shoprite stores for the last eight years, it will now be offered in leading retail stores throughout Southern Africa. Distribution and merchandising partners have been appointed nationally in order to facilitate world-class delivery and on-shelf presence in all stores. IFFCO SA will be looking to introduce new food products in the next few years including pasta, beverages, ice cream, condiments and olive oil.
