I was very impressed with the work that the Karan Beef branding team did for us when we were opening our butchery.

They really went over and above to ensure that we are well prepared and assisted in preparing the meat for the display.

They also brought nice posters that we pasted on the walls so the place can look attractive as well.

Sabelo Meat Lover’s Bryanston Shopping Centre

We would like to thank you and your staff for the great service you have given us.

From the beginning, the Karan Beef branding team came to brand our butchery they have been more than just “Someone from a Supplier” they are family.

They have gone to great lengths to brand our butchery and make sure the brand is out there which is a great bonus for the butchery.

I just want to say thank you to the branding team together with Karan Beef for all your great support love and care.

Now we know that quality does not just have a name but a big caring heart as well.

Karel Le Roux-Naudé From the team at Paardekraal butchery

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing the Karan Beef branding team to spend time in our store.

The training they did with our new manager was very informative and of the highest calibre. They are very professional and a pleasure to work with. Please pass our gratitude to the management of Karan Beef for allowing us this opportunity to learn and discover certain aspects of this industry.

There is nothing more productive than to get hands-on training from personnel that have years of experience and the know-how that they have accumulated over the years. Once again thank you so much for this opportunity and our thanks to you for always being able and willing to assist us over the years.

I would like to take this opportunity to send my gratitude to the amazing team who came to assist us at our in-store butchery at Ferryvale Spar in Nigel.

Your branding team are amazing people. Ever since they came to our store to train our staff, our butcheries sales have increased. Our butchery looks like it just got a revamp because of their magic touch. We are getting compliments one after the other. We have never had so much variety in our Butchery. We appreciate your assistance in sending your branding team to come and train our staff. I hope we can continue building this amazing relationship going further.
