Swaziland Meat Industries Limited (SMI) is a public company, registered and located in Swaziland. Most of the shares are held by its management who purchased them during a Management Buyout in 1999. This has shaped the Company's culture which can be described as hard working and entrepreneurial with a strong loyalty to our customers and suppliers.
SMI's main markets are in Swaziland and southern Mozambique where its flagship Simunye Beef and Pork brands are sought after by the majority of meat consumers.
Outside of Africa SMI exports beef into a number of countries within the European Free Trade Area (EFTA) and the European Union (EU). These include Norway, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the French Indian Ocean Islands of La Réunion and Mayotte.
Quality standards are kept high especially at the beef plant which operates to an EU standard under the supervision of the Swaziland's Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) and is regularly audited by the EU and our customers.
