About Lentaba

The name Lentaba was EPLA's brand name in Europe for beef exports, so we made that our name. Lentaba operates from the old EPLA abattoir facility in Port Elizabeth as well from the Cradock abattoir. The shareholders and directors are Gavin Moorcroft and Ian Landman, all formally of EPLA.

Ian has worked in nearly every department in the business, so he was the perfect choice for Operations Director. Ian and Gavin have been working together for a really long time. They understand the importance of working together as a team to move to company forward.
