Who We Are and What We Do

Our mushrooms are available fresh, tunnel dried, I.Q.F frozen and in a salt brine. We have been continuously implementing the latest technology and equipment available and adhere to strict food safety management systems including the unique ability to trace our mushrooms from origin to destination.
Our wild mushrooms have the unique characteristic of being free of worms, parasites as well as nicotine, pesticides and heavy metals. We offer an industry leading microbiological analysis for every shipment of our product that complies to the highest international standards.
Africas Best Foods Ltd is proud to employ members of the local Mpumalanga and Midlands communities. By doing this, we empower the women in the surrounding rural areas, who are often the bread winners in their respective families.
These women are involved in the harvesting of mushrooms during the rainy season which takes place from October to April. During this time, Africas Best Foods Ltd provides transport to and from the plantations for harvesting as well as purchases product from members of the local communities.
Our staff has an in-depth knowledge of the plantations in which they harvest. They have spent their entire lives watching the land change. Africas Best Foods Ltd encourages positive growth in the community by empowering women and providing a sustainable work environment,
