Our Products


Foodwear and Safety Gear was founded by Ridwaan Jacobs and was officially registered in November 1998. The main focus was being a manufacturer and supplier of protective clothing to all industries that has a demand throughout the year. All fabric and trimmings utilised in the manufacturing section are purchased locally. Clients include the Freddy Hirsch Group, County Fair Foods, Tiger Brands, Delmonte Foods, Excellent Meat Group, Airport Meats and Goosebumps.

We manufacture and supply Protective Clothing for clients with special requirements. Clients also include City of Cape Town, Century City Properties & various Government Health Institutions. Out of this came the request to supply these clients with a complete service which includes Protective Wear, Packaging, Paper Products and Cleaning Materials and Detergents.

In January 2005 we also purchased our own commercial premises which consist of a Showroom, Warehouse and an Administration office. We are currently in the process of extending our existing building. Foodwear and Safety Gear also employs marketing and sales consultants with combined experience of over 45 years in the protective wear industry which not only broadens our customer base, but also provides our customers with expert and professional advice.
