is Highway Meat

Highway meat has been around since 1959 servicing the community with all their meat requirements. Dennis Rei took it to the next level in the late 1980's with regards to customer service, quality meat and 'regte egte' Boerewors' which became everyone's favorite. From the local braai to the national cricket team in India captained by Hansie Cronje, Dennis 'bekende Boerewors' was enjoyed by all carrying on a South African tradition.

After 23 years of service to the community be it selling meat or sponsoring local schools and churches. Dennis decided to retire. The business was sold to family members of which 2 had worked in the business for many years. They learnt from Dennis how to make each customer feel special and ensure their meat requirements are met. What did the change in management mean? A collaboration between Highway Meat and Meatco.
