Gratitude

Festive Season Greetings from our MD, Mientjie Mouton

We look back on yet another successful year with deep gratitude. With Covid still a reality, especially in the East, and the European war directly affecting our largest export markets, Germany and Japan, it is only with great thankfulness and humility that we report another year of good growth. We recognise our dependency on the…

Packaging

Our journey towards sustainable packaging options

Packaging has certainly not given up on its outward beauty but just like the fashion world, it has little meaning if it there is no inner beauty as well. From an attractive visual presentation, product packaging aims to leave a lasting impression on both customers and clients but as important as these first impressions are,…

Relaxing

Teas for specific purposes

Tea has certainly not lost its soothing, relaxing, ‘feel-like-it-can-solve-any-problem’ qualities, but it has definitely taken on increased purpose towards better health. We no longer just want that relaxing cuppa. It has to work for us (like most things nowadays). Covid 19 made a huge contribution to the shift towards greater health awareness and what your…

differences between Red and Green Rooibos

Key differences between Red and Green Rooibos

What exactly is the difference between green rooibos and rooibos (red bush) tea? Could one be better than the other? Just as with black (Camelia Sinensis) and green tea, the difference lies in the processing. Both red and green rooibos comes from the same plant but rooibos(red bush) go through a fermentation (oxidation) process which turns the green…

Family Day

Taste the Good Life Cooking Classes and Family Day 2022

Our long-awaited family day with sponsors Teekanne (represented by Christian Bergmann), Carmién Tea and the Mouton Foundation present, finally took place this year on a scorchingly hot, though very typical, summer’s day at one of our largest community centres, De Meul. Due to Covid-19, the planned family get-together for permanent and seasonal workers was postponed,…

adaptogens

Adaptogenic ingredients and their benefits

Our fastest-growing, disease-causing dilemma, is probably stress and anxiety and this is where adaptogens are playing an increasingly important role. It may cause you to take a more informed sip of your next cup of rooibos tea. Could it be even more beneficial than just a relaxing cuppa? What exactly are adaptogens? Simply said, adaptogens…

Sial Paris

Feedback from SIAL Paris

It is always inspiring to attend SIAL Paris, especially for its insights and research on worldwide consumer behaviour and expectations, food trends and new food concepts. This year was of particular interest in terms of the industry’s transitions and key issues emerging post-COVID. (Most exciting is when you realise that your company is on trend…

immune

Immune boosting Rooibos teas

Rooibos is probably most known for its high antioxidant levels, which brings us all year-round health benefits but especially so in winter when our immune systems need that extra boost. What exactly are antioxidants? Antioxidants are molecules that boost the immune system. They do so by protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals. When…
