NAMC BB-BEE Project for South African Olive Industry

NAMC LogoThe National Agricultural Marketing Council, in partnership with Leonard Arangies, Stellenbosch entrepreneur and founder of The Olive Tree boutiques, is embarking on an ambitious project to expand the reach of Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment initiatives in the South African olive growing industry.

The project, initiated by Arangies, has been in the pipeline for quite some time and RX&Co. has been appointed to coordinate the research, strategy development and framework establishment process to the point where a feasible olive growing estate and production facility can be successfully established. RXOlives and Olive oil&Co. will investigate various olive growing facilities and production plants and liaise with industry professionals and providers over the next few weeks to kick off the process towards establishing the first of potentially multiple sites across the Western Cape province of country.

Pop into The Olive Tree olive oil and products boutique in the Wijnhuis centre (Andringa Street) on your next visit to Stellenbosch for a closer look at the fascinating variety of products made exclusively from South African grown olives and olive oil.
