100 years, centenary, 1900

Our History

The history of our brand goes back to the 1900’s in Lourenço Marques (currently Maputo, the capital city of Mozambique), when Mr. Dias acquired the “secret formula” from a sailor.

He then began to experiment with the formula and eventually in 1905 he launched a range of cordial syrups. The brand grew from strength to strength and in 1988 it successfully expanded further, and due to the rise in demand, relocated to a manufacturing plant in South Africa.

Quality, Award, International, Exposition, Exhibition

Our Quality

The quality of our products goes unmatched for over a century, and we are proud to be one of the few beverage manufacturers that have won various awards for quality at prestigious international expositions, namely Seville 1930, Paris 1931 and Porto 1934.

Our manufacturing policy and commitment to quality has remained consistent since 1905, using only the best raw materials.

Our range consists of three product lines, formulated to suit the consumers

in each desired kind, covering the full spectrum on the syrups market.

Our Products

cordial syrups

Beverage, Drink, Cordial, Mixer, Cocktail, Mocktail, Milkshake, Syrup

Diluted in a ratio of 1:6 with water/milk or 1:10 with lemonade/other soft drinks, they can be used to prepare delicious and fabulous drinks, baking, desserts or as ice-cream topping.

Available flavours include: Capilé, Rose, Red Current, Strawberry and Cream Soda. The Capilé is a plant extract and is more of a caramel flavour; we are the only manufacturers of this flavour in the continent. Our Rose is incomparable and one of the best-sellers, due to its pure and natural flavouring.

cordial mixers

Beverage, Drink, Cordial, Mixer, Cocktail, Mocktail, Milkshake, Syrup

Depending on the flavour, should be diluted in a ratio of 1:4 or 1:6 with water or soft drinks in order to create exquisite and superb beverages. 

Available flavours include: Grenadine, Passion Fruit, Lime, Kola Tonic and Black Currant. None of them lose their aroma, even diluted; they are unique and easily distinguished against similar flavours of other brands.

Kola Tonic tastes fabulous, containing more spices and cinnamon. Our Grenadine is the best, confirmed by many experts in the market, as it can float and makes it easier to layer.

milkshake syrups

Beverage, Drink, Cordial, Mixer, Cocktail, Mocktail, Milkshake, Syrup

These are the most concentrated milkshake syrups around, as only 1 tot (25 ml) of it is needed to flavour a tasty and mouth-watering 450 ml milkshake cup.

They are also suitable to flavour appetizing candy floss, ice-creams, smoothies and other iced drinks; there are manufacturers who use our syrups to flavour their own products. Because we specifically prepare them to not to clog up the different machines, they are not suitable as topping.

Available flavours include: Strawberry, Lime, Banana, Bubblegum, Hazelnut, Cherry and Coconut & Almond.

Like all good brands, DIAS® has moved with the times, perfecting and meeting the demands of its loyal customers. Amongst the end-costumers of our products, there are restaurants, fast-food outlets, bars, coffee shops, hotels, catering entities, ice-cream manufacturers, candy floss producers and even cruise ships, nationwide as well as worldwide.
With our quality range and excellent products, the brand makes pure business sense and is itself a recipe for success.
