Tavish Exports was formed in 2010 by Iain MacTavish, whose interest in plants and what the earth can produce started from a young age in Zimbabwe where he grew up on a farm.


A qualified horticulturalist, Iain has worked in the fresh food and fresh cut flower industry for over 15 years, gaining extensive experience in production, quality assurance, marketing, freight logistics and client relationship management.


He worked for two of Zimbabwe’s largest and most reputable fresh export companies, whose markets were predominantly in the UK and Europe. Iain was then transferred to Johannesburg where he not only managed the import & export of fresh produce, but also for fresh cut flowers. This resulted in him transacting with clients all over the world.


Iain’s vision of one day running his own export company became reality when an opportunity arose in 2010, and so “Tavish Exports” was born.


Tavish Exports aims to be a leading South African export business with an extensive product range, providing easy, hassle free imports for valued clients within Africa and abroad.
