In 2007 Pieter Brand, founder of Baleka Distributors, was informed by a friend that a Chicken factory in Durbanville needed a 4-ton transporter to carry poultry directly to retailers.
With a single truck, a hobby that earned some extra income quickly grew into a profitable business. Pieter identified other customers with on-demand distribution needs and soon turned the single truck operation into a successful small business.
Pieter met Sakkie Liebenberg, founder of LiebenGroup, in 2013. Pieter approached Sakkie for advice and mentorship. Although only a small business in its infancy, the growth potential was visible. Pieter applied the advice on how to restructure and become more sustainable and this contributed to the further success of Baleka. Baleka Distributors was acquired by LiebenGroup on 1 September 2018 and became a part of the Lieben family as Baleka Freight (Pty) Ltd.
