The group benefits from a supply chain and manufacturing providers that promise quick turnarounds and responsible practices. Many of the offerings are produced in South Africa, providing local jobs and boosting manufacturing capacity.

It gives individual brands the freedom to chart their own path within the group strategy. Customers appreciate the product quality, ease of online shopping and free home delivery. They can click and collect from over 900 stores, and TFG offers a rewards programme for loyal customers.
