Henwil was established in 2002 as an abattoir when financial difficulties threatened its existence. The 13 chicken farmers who depended on the abattoir then established a company and bought the facilities to become stakeholders in the truest sense of the word. Following a R100 million expansion project funded through a combination of accumulated reserves and loans:
Owns a fleet of 40 vehicles, including refrigerated trucks, live bird trucks and bulk feed tankers.
Operates a centralised feed mill and is planning to erect a new feed mill that will replace the existing one with sufficient capacity to meet the Henwil growers’ demands.
Owns two stores located in Lichtenburg and Mahikeng that sells about 14% of the abattoir’s production. The flagship Lichtenburg store also offers fresh vegetables, grocery items, other meat products and takeaway meals. Henwil’s Retail stores are immensely valuable for building the Henwil brand and maintaining a healthy cash flow.
Runs a modern abattoir with a slaughtering capacity of 130 000 chickens per day Henwil also contributes to the wellbeing and sustainability of the industry by being an agile business, a caring employer and a responsible corporate citizen.
