Committed to excellence
Our family business was established in 1996 by the late Mrs Eva McFadyen, who was a firm believer in the health benefits of garlic and ginger. She began processing and packaging her homemade products from her garage in Alberton, Johannesburg.
Through sheer determination and the superior quality of her products, she slowly but surely captured a vast share of the greater Johannesburg market.
From these humble beginnings, Garlic Man has grown into an established national brand within the industry, employing 49 staff at our Durban branch.
Research and development
Given constantly changing consumer preferences and patterns, our product researchers surf the crest of a gastronomical wave, regularly introducing innovative and exciting variations and additions to our range, from Eastern to Mediterranean flavours and beyond.
Our key personnel in Research & Development have a combined knowledge in excess of 86 years in the spice and food industry, enabling us to make informed choices that satisfy the consumer’s needs.
We take great pride in having attained all the major food safety standard accreditations, and conduct regular audits to ensure these standards are maintained at the highest level:
- ISO22000 compliant Food Safety Management System
- SANS 10049 compliant Occupational Health and Safety System
- S.A.N.A.H Certification
Garlic Man is the first garlic company in South Africa to be endorsed by the Heart Foundation for our Garlic (excluding the spreads) and Garlic & Ginger products.
