We pride ourselves on our longstanding and excellent relations with most companies within the hospitality and retail sectors in the Mpumalanga area. Matumi is well connected with its wide network of suppliers from around South Africa.

Our business aim is to maintain our existing customers as well as attract new customers by keeping up with the continuous demand, as well as offering excellent service and quality. 

We currently have 27 delivery vehicles to ensure smooth operations to all our 90+ locations within the Mpumalanga area. All our vehicles are GPS monitored to maximize efficiency and minimize delivery times. 

We are sole distributors of some available lines of produce and the authorized distributors of certain brands.



Matumi purchases fresh fruit and veg from a number of suppliers, making sure the produce is top quality. Buying and supporting local farmers is where Matumi goes out of its way to accomplish. Due to sheer demand and such large quantities, a considerable amount of produce is hand selected from the Joburg market then transported to the Matumi pack house where its repacked into orders.

We are not only limited to fresh fruit and vegetables, we make great efforts to keep with the culinary trends and supply specialized goods on request.

Deliveries to Nelspruit and White River take place on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays, Hazyview daily, Kruger National Park, Timbavati and Sabi Sands Tuesdays & Fridays.


our story

Situated in Kiepersol (between White River and Hazyview R40), and founded in 1995 by Anton and Marianne Wood, who started delivering fresh produce to a few of the surrounding hotels and lodges.  Their selling point at the time was personalized service and quality produce - this remains the same today.

From the days of delivering in a Toyota pick-up, Matumi has truly developed into a well known, reliable family run business. Distributing within the Sabi Sands, Kruger National Park as well as to select Spars and other businesses in the surrounding area.
