Like many great families, we come from humble beginnings. Found in 1996 in a coastal town called Sedgefield, Western Cape, we later expanded to George, which to this day remains the home of the original LANCEWOOD® Factory. Since then we have acquired 2 more factories that enable us to continuously deliver superior quality products. We are proud to have maintained a relationship with local farmers from whom we source fresh milk daily.
At LANCEWOOD®, we use pasteurised milk to produce a range of cheese and dairy products that have won us a number of local and international awards and rightly earned us an excellent reputation for superior quality and flavour. We are constantly evolving to bring you convenient, innovative and delicious products.
Over the years, we’ve provided the same taste and quality that South African families have come to love and expect, preserving our leading position in the industry and in homes.
Our parent company, Libstar Operations (Pty) Ltd, founded in 2005 and listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 2018, is an investment holding company operating in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry.
Since Libstar acquired LANCEWOOD® in 2008, the two have become a staple in many South African homes.
