Saverite Supermarkets

Full Description

The Brand

Saverite Supermarkets is part of Masscash (Pty) Ltd, the leading Food Wholesalers in Southern Africa. Saverite started in 2008 and has since grown in both South Africa and in neighbouring countries Lesotho, Swaziland and Botswana. In 2013 Saverite was voted in the top 10 of the Sunday Times Top Brands awards for the first time, a considerable achievement after only five years. We continue to grow as a reputable retailer in Southern Africa.

Saverite Supermarkets leverage off the muscle of Masscash to ensure competitive pricing for the franchisee, and uses the Masscash footprint of 74 wholesalers to distribute product quickly and efficiently to franchise stores. The supply chain is linked to Shield, the leading buying group in South Africa, offering a dual distribution channel not offered in the market place by any other franchise.
