Company Profile

M&L Distributors is a privately owned international trading and distribution company. Our management has many years experience in the fields of importing and distributing. The basic function of the company is to source, market and distribute supermarket foodstuffs and beverages from both the domestic and overseas markets.

M&L Distributors started out as a small family business in 1952 when the core business of the company at that time was supplying corner grocers and small retail outlets with grocery items. The company has grown rapidly since then and now employs over 250 people with warehouse and office space in the main economic centres of South Africa of Port Elizabeth, Durban, Johannesburg with the head office situated in Cape Town.

In South Africa, we are well established with a highly professional sales, marketing, warehousing and distribution operation. Consequently we are able to deal with all the major supermarkets and independent retail operators. We are continuously sourcing products, which we feel have the potential to impact on the South African market. We have all the necessary experience, knowledge and capital to ensure the success of our suppliers.
