Quality Veg was started in 1991 by Mr GA Rix ( senior ) in a single garage with 5 ladies from Kuruman. He was the first farmer to grow baby carrots and was the sole supplier of baby carrots to Woolworths.
As the time past the business grew to a packhouse supplying local, national and international markets.
