OUR HISTORY


The name of our Poultry Processing Plant, Sangiro, was adopted from a pseudonym of the famous writer, film director and game warden, Andries Albertus Pienaar.

Andries (commonly known as Sangiro) was born in the late 1800’s in Broederstroom, where the poultry processing plant currently is situated.

“KNOW YOUR FARMER, KNOW YOUR FOOD.

Broederstroom is a small town situated on the Daspoortrand in the foothills of the Magaliesburg mountains in the North West Province of South Africa.

ABOUT US


Sangiro has been operating as a poultry abattoir since the 1970’s, however, it was the takeover by Mr Andrew Wilkinson in March 2012, which really drove its success and since then has continued to provide a quality product, which is non-injected, proudly South African, predominantly fresh chicken. As our slogan, “Know your farmer, know your food” suggests, we firmly believe our high quality product starts at the farming level though a highly functional relationship with Sangiro’s sister company, Avon Chicken Farming, a company which Mr Wilkinson, previously a chicken farmer himself, began. Currently, there are 23 farms supplying the Sangiro Poultry Processing Plant, 5 of which are owned by Mr Wilkinson himself.

Sangiro currently processes approximately, 700 000 live birds per week and is one of the largest producers of fresh chicken, in South Africa.
