The strike at Tiger Brands is continuing, but shoppers can rest assured that stores won’t run out of their favourite snacks and treats.

The Black Cat owner also owns the Beacon and Wilson's brands.

Workers in the group’s snacks and treats division in KwaZulu-Natal downed their tools last month after the food producer failed to reach a wage agreement with the African Meat Industry and Allied Trade Union (Amitu).

On Thursday, in written response Fin24, Tiger Brands said it was committed to its engagement with the employees and Amitu, to resolve the dispute.

"The company has contingency plans and we are working hard to ensure normal supply of our snacks and treats products to our customers and consumers," said Tiger Brands.
