Rainbow Chickens

“Rainbow’s vision is to be at the heart of every meal.”

RAINBOW’s chickens are delicious roast dinners, the perfect Isishebo and succulent braais.

“The Rainbow brand was founded by the late Stanley Methven on his father’s farm at Hammarsdale, outside Durban in 1960.”

The RAINBOW brand was founded by the late Stanley Methven on his father’s farm at Hammarsdale, outside Durban in 1960. He first sold from a stall in central Durban, demand for RAINBOW’s chicken grew quickly, leading to the commissioning of the first processing plant at Hammarsdale in 1963.

Today, RCL FOODS is South Africa’s largest processor and marketer of chicken. RCL FOODS is a fully integrated broiler producer that breeds and rears its own livestock which it feeds from its own feed mills, processes, distributes and markets fresh, frozen, value-added and further-processed chicken.
