Rediscover the natural taste and benefits of cane sugar with Natura Sugars

Rediscover the natural taste and benefits of cane sugar with Natura Sugars

22/09/2016 - 11:28
With the launch of NATURA SUGARS in South Africa, consumers can now rediscover the natural taste and traditional benefits of cane sugar. The range is a breath of fresh air amidst the negative press that sugar has been receiving. It is, therefore, important to point out the difference that Natura Sugars is a range of truly unrefined sugars, carefully crafted to lock in, rather than refine out, the natural molasses of sugar cane. Natura Sugars are made from lush ripe canes, cultivated on the tropical island of Mauritius, which are free from genetic modification, and can be linked to fair-trade farming. Their authentic Demerara and Muscovado Sugars do not contain caramel syrup. Instead, the intrinsic natural molasses within and around the sugar crystals is responsible for the moist texture and quick-dissolving crystals. read more

Lanseria, Johannesburg, September 01, 2016- In 2016, South Africa saw its water resources depleting quite alarmingly as a result of unfavorable weather conditions. As a result, 8 provinces declared a state of drought disaster. Business sectors in the country were really affected by this unfortunate situation, with the agriculture sector affected the most. As a country, we cannot afford this kind of misfortunes altogether. To avoid wasting water so that we do not find ourselves stranded as a result, we should start by working hand in hand with households, schools and the corporate sector where paper is used on daily basis. Exploring recycling paper as one of the preventive measures of saving water. According to The Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa Recycling one tonne of paper can save up to 26,498 litres of water.  read more

Over the years we have invested in modern technology, created a dedicated barrel policy and refined our own unique style of whisky-making. The brand Three Ships also expanded to include an additional three different whiskies, each with their own style expression and internationally award-winning.”  read more
