Empowering people to amaze

Our Beginning

Goody Thokoman Foods SA Pty Ltd is a South African organization which is a subsidiary of Goody, a respected food products company in the Middle East.

Just like his grandfather who pioneered the Middle East Company several decades ago Mr. Saied Ahmed Basamh saw an opportunity to expand the business and their range or quality products to South African and Sub Saharan Africa.

The first step in this journey was the acquisition of Thokoman Foods SA Pty. Ltd. a manufacturer and marketer or Peanut Butter in South Africa in December 2009.

Since its acquisition Thokoman Foods SA Pty Ltd. has transformed itself in to a Best-In-Class manufacturer of peanut butter, with a world class product, packaging and manufacturing facility. Now called Goody Thokoman, it is delighting consumers with its products not only in South Africa but in several countries around the world.

The company is planning a whole range of new products for the South African market.
