August was Women’s Month, a global celebration which aims to inspire women in countries across the world.
In Cape Town alone, we have a wealth of powerful and inspiring women, and we are so lucky that many of them exist right within the health-food industry. These dynamic women’s businesses align very much with ours; investing in healthy lifestyle, sustainable living, locally made produce, and fresh, yummy products!
During the month of August we cast a spotlight on a few of these inspiring, courageous boss-ladies, who are recognizing what the world is searching for, and are pushing us toward a more equal future.
