About Us

Montagu is a trusted South African brand, known for our moreish array of dried fruit and nuts. Our bright orange branding, reflecting our beloved small-town values and philosophy of providing 'sunshine in a packet', is well-recognised amongst consumers.

Our brand is regarded as a pioneer in the snacking industry for offering a delicious and diverse range of modern snack options that support consumers who aspire to lead a healthier lifestyle.

A humble beginning: Our story began in 2001, with a bright-eyed young boy from the town of Montagu, venturing to the bustling streets of Johannesburg to start a small business.
Approximately 10 years later, with many twists and turns along the way, Montagu launch a trusted South African brand, with numerous franchise stores forming part of the company's portfolio. This, however, was only the beginning.

In 2018, Montagu became a part of the Acorn Agri and Food family - a leading South African vertically integrated agriculture and food group with a hundred-year legacy. As part of this transformation, Montagu has grown significantly to hold both local and international distribution and supplies products to 100 franchise stores, as well as numerous retail stores and convenience stores across the continent.
