towards total quality

In January 2011 Oscar and Eben was on a flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town.  During this flight they decided to embark on a quest to achieve total quality in Woodys.

The only thing they knew was that in order to achieve this, they have to start at the beginning and re work everything.

The Woodys team started on pork farms to better understand how pigs are produced.  We traveled throughout South Africa and the world, forging local and international partnerships.  All the while, learning!

The journey since then took over 17 months and we are only now entering the final stretch.

Through the worst storms the UK has seen in years :


Conducting regular industrial size trials to test our products:


Striving towards superior taste:



Investigating the latest processing technology:


Bringing together and international team working on the re-design the Woodys products and processes:


Ensuring we are having fun as we go!  Smile


Regularly testing the equipment we are looking at and the products we are designing:


Always testing for superior taste:


Until a clear picture started to emerge of what our future will look like:


We are not there yet, but we are close!

We want to thank our loyal clients for your support of the brand and the many emails of encouragement throughout this process.  The Woody’s team is more committed than ever to deliver on its promise of TOTAL QUALITY!

Thanks to the Woodys Team for everybody’s input and hard work!   For being part of the dream!  Woody’s will go from where we are now . . . to GREAT!

“Opportunity is missed by most people because its dressed in overalls and looks like work”

We don’t miss it!  We embrace it!
