Our Wine & Spirits division is one of the largest distributors of wines in the region. To cater to the growing wine-drinking culture, we offer consumers a wide range of premium labels including high profile agency lines from Australia, Chile, France, Italy, Spain and the United States.

Ben Foods has successfully developed its own proprietary brands of food products which have not only become familiar household names, but are exported regionally.

Our Cowhead range of quality milk, dairy products and confectionary and Farmland processed food products have both been awarded 'Superbrand' status.

Our other house brands are Haton (seafood products), Orchard Fresh (beverages) and Spices of the Orient (sauces and seasonings). We strive to strengthen our proprietary brands by launching new, innovative and functional food products each year.

Our distribution activities are supported by our own multi-temperature storage, logistics and distribution facilities.
