We started in the 1990s with six stores selling fresh meat in KwaZulu-Natal. Today we are a chain of more than thirty outlets operating in eight provinces. Cambridge Food may be South Africa’s freshest face in food retail, but we have spent years building our business on a foundation of unbeatable value for our savings-focused customers.
We sell a handpicked range of high-quality national brands, plus goods that we source and pack ourselves under our own brand label, across all major categories. Whether it’s dry groceries, fresh foods, household products or health and beauty aids, our aim is to give our customers more value for their Rand on everything –
from atchar to walkie-talkies.
Our Prime Locations
Saving our customers time is also important to us. That’s why you’ll find our stores at the busiest taxi ranks, train stations and bus depots, near densely-populated residential areas and newly-developed malls. This makes shopping with us not only easy on the purse, but convenient too. With this is mind, Cambridge Food have become our customers’ easiest solution for receiving social grant payouts, buying airtime and more.
Our Focus on Fresh
At the heart of our business is our commitment to offering the very best value for money in fresh foods. Dedicated service departments line each of our stores, including a Grade-A butchery, a meal solution-focused take-away, a home-style scratch bakery, which bakes fresh hot bread throughout the day, and a popular chesa nyama on-site braaiing service. Add to this the freshest fruit and vegetables from our produce department, and Cambridge Food have every meal covered.
Our Customers’ Trusted Partner
While affordable, piping hot snacks and meals attract customers throughout the day, it’s our low price offerings on both single and bulk items that make us a trusted partner for consumers, hawkers, spaza shops and stokvels alike. Cambridge Food buy in large quantities, stock products in various pack sizes, and operate a hi-tech distribution centre – all to secure the lowest possible prices and pass on savings to our customers.
As part of the Massmart group, and now as part of Walmart’s international business, Cambridge Food is helping even more customers save money on the things they really need to live better every day.
