#RainbowFriday: the SA expat’s Friday shopping feature #17

July 29, 2016

Yes indeed, it’s Friday again! This means we’re all getting ready to kick off our shoes, hop on the couch and let our hair down. Or perhaps (since it’s the end of the month), you’re looking forward to a bit of a shopping excursion. If this is you, then we’ve got just the place for you!

Shop of the Week – Fred’s Fine Foods

Fred’s Fine Foods started with owners Fred and Nellie’s dream of starting a new life abroad. Having produced South African foods like biltong, baking and fresh meats for over 13 years, it just seemed like the perfect business opportunity to continue this trade when they moved to New Zealand in 2001.

The business opened their doors in May 2002 with the focus of delivering quality products and excellent service to their local clients. Online sales and courier services were swiftly added and a few years later the shop expanded to double the floor space. Fred’s fine foods has since opened an additional branch in Howick and has a factory shop in Silverdale.
