Founded in 1996 in Sedgefield, Western Cape, LANCEWOOD® later expanded to George, which to this day remains the home of the original LANCEWOOD® Factory. Since then we have acquired 2 more factories, enabling us to continuously deliver superior quality, award-winning products, made using fresh dairy, which we source daily from local farmers.
Today we pride ourselves on being one of the country’s leading providers of superior quality dairy products, as well as the home of South Africa’s No.1 Cream Cheese and Cottage Cheese. Our wide range of innovative, quality products, including cheese, sauces, yoghurts and more, has been designed to make delicious meals easier than ever to prepare, enabling our consumers to trade time in the kitchen for quality time together.
Our extensive range is constantly evolving in line with the needs of our consumers, accompanied by a vast selection of delicious recipes designed to make mealtimes more memorable. So whether you’re looking to impress without added stress or to delight your family the easy way, trust LANCEWOOD® to turn ordinary moments into unforgettable occasions.
