If you’re looking for a healthy snack to nibble on between meals, grab some dried fruit and nuts from one of our stores. All outlets within the FLM Group are supplied by our affiliate Cape Roasters, one of the country’s leading players in this fast-growing industry.
A nut warehouse and roastery was opened at Food Lover’s Market Head Office in October 2016, and in 2021, it reopened to new premises due to continued growth. Starting as the supplier to Food Lover’s Market of bulk nuts from all over the World, (raw nuts, roasting, and packing it all themselves), Cape Roasters is now packing over 200 lines stocked at Food lover’s Market stores nationwide.
Over the last 5 years, they have expanded into dried fruit, various trail mixes, seeds, and most recently confectionery (including the festive range found at Food Lover’s Market stores.). We chatted with Clarence Davis, the Food Lover’s Market Product Manager to get some insight into the ins and outs of the new Cape Roasters.
“We also expanded our pre-pack ranges, which now include Food Lovers House Brand products, most of the You First range in the Health Department as well as Munch on the Run which can also be found in FreshStop stores.” Whilst cashews (in the gravity bin dispensers – the weighed cashews that you can buy per kg) and Almonds are still the most popular, Cape Roasters is growing and developing products to satisfy your snack ‘sweet’ tooth.
