FULLY INTEGRATED RED MEAT VALUE CHAIN

WHAT
WE DO

Cavalier Group operates a fully integrated red meat value chain. We specialise in the procurement, feedlotting, slaughter, packing and processing, and distribution of the highest quality Beef and Lamb products.

WHO
WE ARE

For more than thirty years, Cavalier
has prided itself on bringing meat
eaters the very best red meat products,
from farm to fork. Today, the Cavalier
Group delivers superior product and
service via four integrated companies:

Cavalier Livestock

Our countrywide livestock trading house, dealing in all different categories of production animals: goats, sheep, lamb, slaughter cattle and weaner cattle.

Cavalier Feeders

With its own in-house feed factory and purpose built to add final growth to lamb before entering the meat production chain, our feedlot is situated on Boekenhout Farm, just outside of Pretoria and houses up to 20,000 head of sheep.

Cavalier Abattoir

Situated on the same premises as our packaging factories and feedlot, our state-of-the-art abattoirs place top priority on the lasting product integrity and unparalleled shelf-life of carcasses and primal cuts.

Cavalier Foods

Our meat packing plant situated outside Cullinan, Gauteng. The factory was designed to pack various retail and case ready cuts using the latest packing technology for both fresh beef and lamb. Cavalier Foods delivers countrywide utilising the company’s own dedicated refrigerated fleet.

HOW WE
CARE

At Cavalier, we continuously work on
building a vertically integrated value
chain which is economically sustainable
and which provides quality of life – all
the while preserving the environment
and its resources for future generations.

Cavalier’s management strategy is
guided by the 7 LEAN principles:
To Eliminate Waste, Build Quality
In, Create Knowledge, Defer
Commitment, Deliver Fast, Respect
Our People, and Optimize the Whole.

Our formalized sustainability strategy
involves commitments on economic
development, environmental protection,
and social wellbeing.

Economic Development

A strong and engaged private sector is indispensable to alleviate extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity. Cavalier Group specializes in continuous development towards establishing the shortest and most effective route for quality red meat products from farm to fork. We hold international SEDEX SMETA Membership, and enforce the ETI Base Code on Ethical Trade throughout our supply chain.

Social Wellbeing

An established Social and Ethics Committee meets regularly to discuss the agenda points as outlined by the Company Act of South Africa. Actions and Outcomes from this Committee includes a Skills Development Programme and Conditional Sponsorship, an Employee Wellbeing Programme, Anonymous Hotline, Subsidized meals, and investment projects are in the pipeline.

Environmental Protection

Cavalier has developed three strategic action plans to identify priorities and set targets and timelines towards environmental protection. Within our Waste Reduction Strategy we focus on the hierarchy of reduce, recycle, recover and only as a last resort, dispose. We are determined to reach our target of zero waste to landfill by 2030.

Through high-impact projects, we have achieved targets to reduce water usage, and have set more goals to reuse, harvest and recycle water as part of our Water Conservation Strategy and its objectives.

Through our Carbon Footprint and Energy Strategy we aim to improve efficiency, eliminate waste and generate renewable energy through alternative sources.

Animal welfare programs are implemented on farms, during transit and at on-site handling facilities to ensure the most humane treatment possible at all our facilities.

We maintain memberships to value-chain organizations, ethical trade organizations and others, including The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), Red Meat Abattoir Association (RMAA), AgriSA, and the Red Meat Industry Forum.
