AGRIFOODSA.INFO Magazine Jan/Feb '18



A very Happy New Year to all of our AGRIFOODSA Magazine readers and advertisers!  I trust that your holidays were well spent with family & friends, taking some time to recuperate and prepare for 2018.

As people do each January, we all think about resolutions, fresh starts, things in which we’d like to improve, etc.  Often resolutions revolve around our health, and those are good ones to make and keep! But if you are like me, by February most have been forgotten, so my resolution is to simply enjoy the year ahead.

Contentment. Happiness. Joy. What do those words conjure up in your mind? I think for most, it’s getting or even giving an exciting something that you didn’t have to pay a cent for.  If that sounds like you, head over to our Competitions page on the AFSA Website ( to win some “lekker” prizes every other month (see pages 50-51 for more details). Our AFSA Facebook page ( also offers weekly competitions plus funnies, advertiser showcases, recipes, Boererate, interesting articles and so much more.

In an effort to ensure that you have tons of time to do what makes you truly joyful, we’re proud to present you with the very best in local products and service providers in the Southern African agricultural and food related industries. With 63 advertisers in this publication and thousands of advertisers on the AGRIFOODSA.INFO website (, we’re sure that you’ll be in touch with the right people for all of your requirements in no time at all.

We are very pleased to have welcomed two new and very cheerful sales consultants, Renier van der Merwe and Sonja Botha, to our team.  We trust that they’ll have fantastic success with us.

Abraham Lincoln once said:  “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be”, so I do hope that you’ll choose to and work towards having a beautiful new year.

Keeping the sunny side up.
