We are a specialist distributor of chilled and frozen foods to the hospitality industry, including the restaurant, hotel, catering and domestic sectors.
The company, which was bought by East London based entrepreneur, Tony Cotterell, was originally a seafood wholesaler. Lusitania Food Products has extended its portfolio to now include over 1000 lines of quality branded meat and chicken products, vegetables and dairy goods, as well as desserts, pastries and cakes.
Lusitania, which has branches in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, delivers to customers throughout Southern Africa, as well as neighbouring countries.
Lusitania is set to strengthen its position in a highly competitive market through a carefully structured consolidation programme, supported by the launch of new food products, to meet exact market demand.
Lusitania works hard at relationships and has secured the distribution agreements for some of the most respected brands in the food and beverage sector.
The team has taken important steps to develop and fulfil strategic objectives – in the process, building on existing strengths and enhancing the reputation of Lusitania’s business. The company’s management team believes Lusitania’s greatest asset is its people. The team, which is committed to service excellence, is offered an on-going training programme to enhance product knowledge, technical skills and customer support.
Lusitania knows that a close, unified company, with a determination to fulfil mutual goals, means a successful and happy organisation. Life-long career opportunities encourage dedication to the company, also benefiting a loyal customer base.
Lusitania Cares for the Environment
Lusitania is committed to building partnerships with many key suppliers which share the company’s concerns for sustainability in the fishing industry. Coveted local and international accreditation mean that all fish and seafood is legally caught and traded.
Lusitania is setting a new trend in South Africa by influencing the choices people make when buying seafood. Transformation in the seafood market to a sustainable basis will safeguard the oceans for future generations.
