About us


Background

BJK was established in 1997 by former Tiger Brands South Africa Procurement Manager Brendhan 'Jock' Kannemeyer.

The company was established in collaboration with Tiger Brands to act as an out-sourced Procurement Agency specialising in sourcing critical ingredients for several of the Tiger Group’s factories.
 
A rapid transformation from agent to fully fledged supplier to the Tiger Group took place over the next three years with BJK investing in cold storage facilities, refrigeration equipment, warehousing and vehicles thus broadening our scope of activities and entrenching our position in the supply chain.
 
This same specialised purchasing concept and continuous investment into supply chain infrastructure provides for a complete supply chain management service that has allowed BJK to expand its services to many other large South African manufacturers including Nestle, MARS, Bokomo, Foodcorp, AFGRI, Montego and many others.
