• Barry Callebaut is setting up its own local network of distributors in South Africa;
• Expanding the product portfolio with additional products and global premium brands;
• Further improving the local customer service.

The Barry Callebaut Group, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality chocolate and cocoa products, is setting up a local, direct distribution network in South Africa. The company is opening up its Gourmet business of packed products for artisans and chefs to other and multiple distributors, while still including Garden Morris Packaging and Food (GMPF) as a distributor. Having worked with GMPF for over 20 years, Barry Callebaut will continue to collaborate with GMPF for its semi-industrial customers, food manufacturing business, warehousing, and logistics.

Barry Callebaut will increase the number of distribution points and take over the role of master distributor in South Africa. The new network will focus on supplying customers in South Africa and the neighboring countries with a wide range of products from the Group’s global Gourmet brands like Callebaut, Mona Lisa, Cacao Barry, and Carma. By expanding its local product range and doubling the size of its local team, Barry Callebaut will meet the increasing demand for high-quality chocolate indulgence and support the growth within the African markets. The South African food and grocery retail market is expected to grow at a CAGR of +4.9% between 2020 to 2025, with an estimated value of $59.6 billion by 2025, which opens up opportunities for Barry Callebaut1.
