Since our inception in 1945 Cape Karoo International has pioneered the global supply of quality ostrich products.
We have accumulated a wealth of knowledge about ostriches by being active in the Klein Karoo farming community for many decades and have created a trusted heritage around our brand.
Cape Karoo International has been researching and keeping up to date with the latest technological advancements and processes to ensure that our farm reared ostriches are handled in the most humane and modern conditions.
The Cape Karoo Co-Operative (also established in 1945) facilitates ostrich farming and marketing in a structured and orderly manner. Our structure ensures the future growth and continuing existence of ostrich farming in the Klein Karoo.
At Cape Karoo we pride ourselves on supporting a BS 2780: 1983 Leathersure, which means that our ostrich leather products meet the highest leather quality standards as deemed by BLC.
We also hold an ISO 9001 which further proves our dedication to providing the global market with products that are not only of the highest quality, but are also treated and manufactured with professionalism and consideration.
The South African ostrich industry wishes to ensure sustainability and therefore compiled a Code of Conduct for the utilisation of natural veld to which all producers subscribe. The SA Ostrich Business Chamber also interacts regularly with the relevant government departments, as well as private conservation initiatives.
