We welcome Shaun Swart, our new Country Manager for South Africa!
At Salix Fruits, we continue to promote our growth as a company in this key region for our project. Located in South Africa since 2014 with our own procurement offices, today we are adding Shaun Swart to our team to strengthen our position in this country.
His work at Spinneys Dubai allowed him to gain extensive experience in sourcing for retail, planning, implementing, and managing the procurement strategy for local and international products. In addition, he was Purchasing Manager at Woolworths and Head of Fresh Food at Geant Saudi.
His tasks will include planning the growth and development of businesses in the region, which is a key source territory for the company's project. In addition, he will be in charge of the direction and administration of the entire commercial team in South Africa and the management of the strategy to strengthen the position of the company in the country.
