Alive with possibilities

To all our friends in the trade we’d like to not only wish you a wonderful 2011 but also hope that it’ll be a year that will see everyone have many good times, happy times and successful times. A new year is always filled with hope, and though we won’t be hosting anything as major as last years FIFA Soccer World Cup, we’re looking forward to business booming just because South Africa is a place where everything can happen!

We’ll be looking forward to looking after our clients in the formal trade; appearing at markets, fairs & festivals; and getting more and more people to try our exciting products instead of just going with what they know. Continue reading
