Nova Feeds is a provider of scientifically formulated feeds to the South African market, including exports to the rest of Africa.
The main feed categories produced include broiler, layer, dairy, sheep, cattle, ostrich and pig feeds. These are produced in production plants located in Malmesbury, Pretoria, George, and Paterson.
Nulaid, the egg-layer division of Quantum Foods, is the largest egg producer in South Africa and the only national producer.
It has been voted as the number one egg brand in South Africa (voted as an Icon Brand and winner in the egg category – for another consecutive year – SA’s 2016/2017, IconBrands).
Layer & Broiler Farming
Quantum Foods owns the rights to import pedigree grandparent broiler stock of the Cobb 500 breed, which supplies next generation parent stock for its own requirements and non-exclusively for some customers in some other countries in Africa.
Day-old commercial broiler chicks are produced at the Group’s two hatcheries. The day-old chicks are transferred to commercial broiler farms, both company-owned and contract-grower farms.
