About us

WHO WE ARE

WhAT WE STAND FOR

Pumpkin Patch is a family run company that takes great pride in supplying premium quality food products to the finest retail and hospitality institutions in the Western Cape. We believe in making premium quality food products affordable and accessible to all.

Our story

In 2014, we started our business by processing the vegetables harvested on our farm in Vanrhynsdorp. At the time our main focus was to supply “pre-packed” vegetable products to retail. Since then, we have ventured into dried fruit, speciality veg, ready-to-eat salads, and most recently- home food deliveries.

Food safety

Our packhouse in Stellenbosch was purposefully built according to ISO22002, HACCP, and Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) guidelines for food processing facilities. In October 2019, we achieved a score of 96,2% in terms of our food safety compliance.

Packaging POLICY

In 2018, we embarked on a mission to reduce and replace single-use plastics in our food products. We now package our products in plant-based (PLA – cornstarch) bioplastics to improve our environmental footprint and sustainability of conducting our business. To date, we have reduced our single-use plastics by more than 70%.

Produce

Our fresh produce is source exclusively from GLOBAL GAP certified farmers around the Western Cape, to ensures that our products are always fresh, traceable, and free from harmful chemicals.

Distribution

We utilise our own fleet of refrigerated vehicles. This allows us to shorten the time between production and delivery, and more importantly, retain complete control over the quality of our products in transit.
