Born in South West of France and trained in the “conserverie” of Foie Gras we decided in 1991 in the middle of Johannesburg in South Africa to run a small preserving meat business similar to those established in France. Wanting our new enterprise to remain a family business we named it after our son: “Franck”, Franck Food was born.


This all started a very long time ago, at least for me it seems. I was only 5 when my parents, Christian and Josy Godinot, started the family business. Funny enough I do remember when they named it after me: “Franck Food”.

Coming from South West of France and having had training in the traditional methods of  French “conserverie”, my parents went full steam with creating a small meat canning factory in South Africa.
