Willowton Oil & Cake Mills, a wholly owned family business, began operations in 1970. Through the foresight of the late Dawood Moosa (known as DH) and his sons – the business has, over the years, established itself as one of the leading expressers of oilseeds and refiners of edible oils.
Using state-of-the-art technology and hands-on experience, Willowton Oil & Cake Mills diversified into the manufacture of candles, toilet and laundry soaps, margarine and spreads, as well as baking, chocolate and industrial fats.
WOCM is now a reputable market leader, synonomous with quality products and the highest standards of excellence.
Situated in Pietermaritzburg, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Willowton Oil & Cake Mills expanded its operations to incorporate its manufacturing, packaging and distribution capabilities to the extent that it now also has operations in Isando (Johannesburg) and Maitland (Cape Town).
