Colcom Foods Limited is a long established meat-processing company in Zimbabwe, with a reputation for a wide range of hygienically prepared quality processed products. It is principally a pork company, with a joint venture—Associated Meat Packers (AMP)—producing quality beef products. Colcom Foods is part of the Colcom Holdings Group, which in turn is majority owned by Innscor Africa. Both Innscor and Colcom are listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange.
Colcom’s origins are in a farmer-owned cooperative established in late 1943 to assist with the marketing of their pigs. The then Cold Storage Commission acted as their agents until 1961, when the Cooperative’s first processing factory was built on the present site in Harare. In 1993 Colcom was successfully floated on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange and became a publicly quoted company. Colcom supplies wholesalers and retailers nationwide and operates its own and franchised outlets, including a Training Centre at “The Colcom Kitchen”.
