My parents worked hard to push the “unknown” products into the South African market, and with perseverance comes success. Orders from gourmet shops, delicatessens, gift shops and corporate hampers were plentiful, followed by local advertising in newspapers and magazines. Things were looking great!
The rapid progress allowed for an increase of the team to 8 people and to develop a new range using the African game meat aimed at the tourist market. At the same time, accreditation of our HACCP plan for export was on its way.
Unfortunately, towards the end of 2000 we decided to make plans to leave this beautiful country due to unstable circumstance within South Africa.
