About Us

From humble beginnings, Deli Spices has grown in size and stature to become one of the most respected premier spice companies in South Africa. As our clients have evolved, we have evolved with them, which is why we have recently re-invested in machinery and personnel. Despite our growth, we remain dedicated to creativity, quality, food safety and service. 

Our 12 000 sqm plant in the Western Cape now houses state-of-the-art warehousing, milling, production and laboratory facilities; including computerised picking systems to facilitate batch tracking and full traceability. We also offer training kitchens, research & development laboratories and quality control facilities to ensure all our products meet the high standards demanded by our clients. 

Deli Spices takes great pride in being the first spice company in South Africa to receive ISO 22000 certification. Currently we hold a SABS FSSC 22000 accreditation certificate as well as Kosher and Halaal certification. 

We aim to show our clients and potential clients that we are continuously growing and innovating, and that we are a force to be reckoned with!”

- Robin Haller, CEO


The Deli Spices story began with its founder, Walter Haller. Having studied as a Fleischmeister in Germany, Walter went on to become a pioneer in the meat and spice trade internationally, eventually settling in South Africa to start Deli Spices. Since then, Walter’s leadership has turned Deli Spices into an empire, supplying thousands of products to butcheries and supermarkets all over Africa. In his 83rd year, we would like to congratulate Walter on reaching a significant milestone in life. We thank him for sharing the determination which will continue to take Deli Spices from strength to strength. 

In the mid-nineties, Walter was joined by his sons who immediately set about restructuring the business for rapid growth. The first port of call was to take ownership of the national distribution network and hence systematically over the years, the company facilitated the roll out of a network of owner/ managed distribution centers across the country. Today, 75% of the branches within Southern Africa, are controlled by the Deli Spices group.
