Elmadré Butchery, a family owned business, opened its doors on 10 Feb 1995 in Nelspruit and has grown into a successful, award winning establishment. Rassie Strydom, the head butcher, and his wife Marianna founded the business on traditional values and hard work.

From the get-go they wanted to be known for their exceptional products and personal client service, as they themselves place high value on quality. The butchery soon became a favourite in the neighbourhood and has since become a one-stop destination to make grocery shopping for their clients as convenient as possible. They stock fresh fruit and vegetables, freshly baked breads, dairy products, local jams and preserves, and various homemade biscuits and rusks from artisans in the community.

As Elmadré kept on expanding, it was time for a new, bigger location in 2006. Along with the new store, came a time where they found themselves short on staff in order to meet the community’s needs. Their son, Wimpie joined the family business and brought his own special flair for food with him.

Together their passion for delicious food, along with their unique marinade recipes and spice mixtures, and of course Rassie’s years of experience as a cattle farmer, have guaranteed that they know exactly what they are doing when it comes to creating outstanding meat products.

As the years went by, The Strydom family with their love for delicious food, started doing spitbraai events and this proved to be such a hit that the community wanted more. Shortly after, Elmadré Event Management and Catering Services was born. Elmadré Catering has grown to the extent that it has evolved into its own business.

Managed by Marianna, Elmadré Catering is known for its delicious food creations made with fresh, quality ingredients. We do catering for weddings, conferences, birthday parties, bridal and baby showers and many more. You can read more about our catering services here.
