Founder and entrepreneur Guy Osler is the driving force and vision behind Overberg Food Distributors.
In 1992, he started in the industry selling venison meats with one bakkie, one employee and a chest freezer in his garage. Overberg Foods Distributors was born! His dedication to his customers and ability to establish solid relationships with a growing list of suppliers saw the company establish itself as a serious player in the industry.
In 2008, Guy built his own DC cold storage facility in Philippi and the business grew from strength to strength. As buying volumes increased Guy was able to command better buying prices offering his customers top competitive rates. Now, Overberg Foods has established itself as one of the leading independently owned food wholesalers and distributors in the country.
His passion and belief in his company values of Honesty and Integrity has seen Guy become one of the most respected entrepreneurs in the food industry.
Guy’s resilience through tough economic times and ever-optimistic attitude has seen the company expand further by opening a branch in PE to service the Eastern Cape.
