Rainbow Friday: the SA expat’s Friday shopping feature

January 29, 2016

Today marks our first Rainbow Friday shopping feature for South African emigrants living abroad. From now on you can look forward to a Friday blog featuring one shop selling South African goods abroad.

If you want your shop to be featured, or have a suggestion for a fantabulous South African shop, feel free to mail your suggestions to:

Shop of the Week – Springbok Foods, Australia

If you’ve moved down under, which is to say not really further down than South Africa on le map, chances are you’ve been looking for some safa flavour to infuse your Australian home.

If this is you, then look no further than Springbok Foods. If you want to browse the aisles and shelves for your favourite South African delight, you can visit a Springbok Foods shop in Gold Coast or North Lakes. If, however, you prefer a home-shopping experience or are a bit far from these locations, you can simply visit their website and shop online.

About Springbok Foods

They import and sell all your favourite South African products and also manufacture and sell a wide range of their own gourmet boerewors, biltong, dry wors, sosaties and mielie meal under their own brand label. They stock a few ‘home baked’ goodies like koeksisters, malva poeding and melktert and a range of samoosas.
