CBS is a Level 1 Black Economic Empowered business that was born out of a need to reduce complexity, risk and cost in the value chain of manufacturing certain products for one of our key customers. We jointly embarked on building a business plan that resulted in the first Black Owned Contract Blending Manufacturer in South Africa that truly represented sustainable transformation with its shareholders all being directly involved in the day to day running of the business. CBS was selected by the AVI board as the winners of a joint Corporate Social Investment project which provided startup capital. CBS is truly unique in that it combines the challenges of improving business costs and risks with embracing sustainable black economic transformation in a crucial area in the food manufacturing value chain. CBS is made up of shareholders representing a wide range of skills and experience working harmoniously to deliver a world class service to our customers.

  • CBS comprises 51% CoSo employed Black Shareholders with CoSo as a minority shareholding assisting as mentor
  • CBS is a FSSC22000 Certified plant and is accredited by Kellogg, Nestle, Tiger Bands, Ciro , Entyce, Slo-Jo, Aldor and many others
  • Currently blending sweet and savoury blends for the above customers.

CBS roots stem from our long-term partnership with some of our key Blue Chip Customers who have invested in our ability to offer more value to our portfolio of services over the years. This has enabled us to develop our employees to highly qualified professionals in many fields including quality and food safety, supply chain, engineering, finance and project management.
