The Charges and the Ban

Foschini is a South African small, retail food group, that trades under different labels and has over 3,500 outlets across its entire portfolio. It is headquartered at Parow near Cape Town. This company is highly diversified and manufactures and distributes food products, ranging from fresh to frozen. It also has a lot of dairy products, confectionery items, snacks and other food items under the Maspeth brand name.


The foschini is one of the popular legumes in south Africa. The main selling varieties of foschini are white, red, brown and green varieties. These beans have a very strong smell and taste and are easily available in the market. The foschini retail group proprietary limited has released several variants in order to meet the demands of the customers and also to provide customers with new and unique experience.

The foschini brand was listed on the DAX board of directors’ criteria as “a foodstuff with potential for public health and nutrition”. It was also said to have “unlimited opportunities for social development and income upliftment”. The company’s roots go back about four decades and were initiated by an entrepreneur named Reinhold Visser. He had opened a candy store in South Africa in the early 1990s and decided to apply his marketing knowledge to creating an instant enterprise through the fossils. The financial literacy initiative was launched in 2005 and it is an important step forward in improving the financial situation of the nation.

The company has gone through various cycles and phases to reach where it is today. At the beginning, it was known for manufacturing delicious sweets with the aid of newly developed technology and innovative processes. However, the demand for fossils and other sweets by the African consumers was not huge. The introduction of new affordability regulations by the government changed everything. With the introduction of new regulation and stricter guidelines by the Government, more consumers are now willing to purchase African produced products.

Fosdias can now be purchased from the online retail stores at a discounted price, thanks to the efforts of the FTC. Foschini also had been threatened to be banned if it did not join the fight against fraud. This threat actually increased consumer interest in purchasing fossils from the online store. The lewis group is now offering incentives to retailers who want to sell their fossils using the lewis group membership cards. This is actually an incredible opportunity and one that is not being taken advantage of.

Another great thing about Foschini is that it uses only sustainable growing methods. According to the new affordability regulations, the Kenyan Government has ordered all foreign companies to source Fosdias only from compliant soil and arable zones. In compliance with this order, many African retailers are growing Fosdias organically and utilizing organic pesticides. Organic pesticides in turn reduce chemical residue, which is believed to be one of the causes of cancer in humans.

The new affordability regulations also directed that all companies selling Fosdias in Kenya must ship products to more markets using approved methods of fertilization and shipping procedures. Many consumers have expressed confusion over the fact that Foschini has been banned, but it is still available and being sold online. The confusion stems from the fact that it had been exporting its products to the united states before the order was issued. The retailer says that the company will begin shipping to afre markets again in January of 2017. This means that more consumers will once again be able to enjoy the wonders of Foschini and its amazing health benefits.

It looks like Foschini may be facing a ban in some areas of the world while its appeal to the western market continues. But consumers in Kenya seem to be loving the new taste and aroma of Fosdias. It’s interesting to see where the marketing of Fosdias takes place next as the company looks to recover from the charges levied against it by the Lewis Group.
