Since 2011 the franchise network has grown at a tremendous rate and the brand is known today through South Africa for its Sunshine in a Packet top quality products.  We pride ourselves with the biggest variety of dried fruit, nuts and seeds products in South Africa and into Africa.

Our range consists of fruit, seeds and nuts in bars or rolls, snack- or strip packs or even in the form of sweets – all in bright, attractive packaging allowing a clear view of the Montagu quality assured contents.


Our Franchise is a product distribution franchise as oppose to a business format franchise. We supply a product on a supplier/dealer basis, which is then retailed by the franchisee and the franchisee enjoys the benefit of a well-established brand name and quality products.
