ABSTRACT
The article focuses on food producers with its market capitalisation consisting of 15 listed companies in the sector in South Africa (SA). It states that Pioneer, one of SA's leading former cooperatives, has remained an outstanding player in the food and beverage industries because of its wide range of popular brands. On the other hand, Senwes Ltd. has turned magnificently from near bankruptcy in 2000-2001, but has grown steadily over the years with good results.
