Douglasdale Dairy’s Polokwane depot moved from their premises in Yster St, Ladine to their newly built facility in Ayesha St, Magna Via, Polokwane.
The move is a result of increased regional consumer demand for their optimal quality fresh products and the subsequent need to upgrade the fridge chilling capabilities and increase fridge storage capacity. Douglasdale Dairy has invested in the expansion to ensure they can deliver on their promise of quality and customer service in the region.
Located in the heart of Johannesburg’s northern suburbs, Douglasdale Dairy has been a functional dairy for more than 70 years. In April 2005, Douglasdale Dairy became one of the first fresh milk dairies in South Africa and the first in Gauteng to have achieved HACCP certification. It now is very proud to have achieved the SABS stamp of approval.
Douglasdale Dairy produces an extensive range of fresh products, including full cream, low fat and fat free fresh milk, Amasi (maas), buttermilk and cream. Skim milk powder and unsalted butter are also produced. All Douglasdale Dairy’s products are Kosher and Halaal.
Douglasdale Dairy services the greater Gauteng region, North West, Limpopo, and Mpumalanga provinces.
The new Polokwane depot supplies a number of major towns in Limpopo over a radius of 250 kms, having extended its distribution substantially into major retailers, including Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Checkers, Spar, Choppies and Roots Butcheries.
Thabang Malatji, the depot manager of the new facility, comments, “It is a privilege to manage the new depot, as our management team acknowledges the success and growth achieved in Limpopo and surrounding areas and continues to invest in the region. The new facility will enable Douglasdale Dairy to maintain its high standard of quality and service, ensure that we can meet all commitments due to our new state-of-the-art refrigeration facilities, and continue to grow the market”
