Our Characteristics

Coega Dairy is characterised by the story of the Tambookie Thorn, an attractive, indigenous shrub that occurs in the Queenstown area of the Eastern Cape, South Africa. This resilient plant has an enlarged healthy underground root system, which makes it sustainable in harsh environmental conditions.

This is how we feel that the Tambookie Thorn represents the characteristics of Coega Dairy:

  • Indigenous – We stay true to Africa and the Eastern Cape region’s dairy producers.
  • Unique – We offer a distinctive, eco-friendly approach to the production of our dairy products.
  • Efficient – We look at constant renewal and improvement to fulfil social needs.
  • Resilient – We have an enthusiastic approach and commitment to sustainability and growth.
The story of Coega Dairy
The story of Coega Dairy

The concept for Coega Dairy was initiated in 2010 by 13 local Eastern Cape dairy farmers; all with the same aim.


Protecting the scenic Eastern Cape countryside and building a better future is important to us, which is why we strive to ensure that our products are as environmentally-friendly as possible.
