On 18 July 2019, in honour of Nelson Mandela, SASKO teamed up with Jenny Morris, the Giggling Gourmet, to make soup and bake bread rolls to donate to The Haven Night Shelter.
Visitors to the Cape Quarter in De Waterkant, Cape Town, braved cold weather to slice and dice vegetables or roll up their sleeves to knead for those in need. The courtyard filled up from 8h30 until mid-afternoon as corporates and residents in the area stopped in to donate their time.
In addition to joining forces with Jenny, SASKO’s bakeries across the country set out - yielding butter knives and a smile - to make almost 10 000 sandwiches in 67 minutes for Mandela Day.
Each bakery identified several different charities in their respective areas to deliver sandwiches for lunch along with extra loaves of bread.
Le-Anne Engelbrecht, SASKO marketing executive, says, “At SASKO, we believe you can taste the care in our products. By taking 67 minutes in our day to make sandwiches or knead dough to bake on Mandela Day, we are showing the care. SASKO is at the heart of many family tables at mealtime, and there are so many people who are not fortunate enough to have a mealtime to look forward to. Small acts like this have a big effect and we salute everyone who took time out of their day to assist in any way.”
As South Africa celebrates Women’s Month this August, Bavaria magnifies and highlights the vital role that women play in society: the mothers who raised us, and the daughters who continue to bind families together. Women are a source of power and a symbol of progress. Indeed, they are the very fabric that weaves our great nation together.
The 3rd annual Soweto Kota Festival will take place on 7 and 8 September 2019, and SASKO, the experts in milling and baking, is proud to announce it has renewed its sponsorship for a third year.
