How to safeguard against Listeria (Listeriosis), FOOD SAFETY 101

Listeriosis is a serious, but treatable and preventable disease caused by the bacterium, Listeria monocytogenes and is widely distributed in nature and can be found in soil, water and vegetation. Furthermore, animal products and fresh produce such as fruits and vegetables can be contaminated from these sources. Unfortunately the South Africa listeria outbreak that has killed 180 people since January is the largest that has ever been recorded globally, as reported by the World Health Organization. As such we have included a Food Safety 101 guide on preventing the spread of the disease. Please share this information and help others to prevent the spread of Listeriosis.

Welcome to our website!

Dear Clients

It is our great privilege to welcome you to Caprichem’s new website created and launched by our own in-house art department and highly qualified graphic designers. The website was started on the first of January and was finalised on the 15th of August consisting of more than 2000 pages.

Our company Caprichem is introducing this new website for the service of our customers and clients. We have found that in our industry websites are kept very basic because of the costs of creating a website and the hand out of confidential information. We find that smaller companies which we call pirates always tend to copy our information to enrich themselves due to the lack of experience and qualifications. Our motto is lots of opposition but no competition because nobody knows chemicals the way we do. We pride ourselves with more than 60 years of experience in the chemical industry.

To provide the ultimate service to our customers and clients and to avoid failure from the human factor we have built a new user friendly website which would give you all the knowledge of a product, where and how to use it. We have included extremely useful tips to a variety of industries including dilution charts and will keep updating our website to support our customers and clients to the fullest.
Our new website is regarding cleaning chemicals, cleaning accessories and in depth knowledge of how, when and where to use the product. To assure that the job gets done using the right product and reaching the result required.

The main reason for launching a new website is to educate our customers and clients properly and to notify everybody of all and any changes in cleaning industry. It is not always easy to provide a good service to customers which is of great distance. Now with the new website we can eliminate the factor of out of  site is out of mind. Our customers will now be able to download urgent information required for audits or information needed for medical purposes and mainly to access all new products and brands launched by our developing team.

Our company has employed over 100 employees who are very efficient and creative. We are positive that with the help of these employees our website would be a great help and a big success in future.
The address of our website is Please visit our website as it is made for your service and if you have any further suggestion for its improvement you can contact us on or
