‘E’ is for Elderberry & Elderflower!

If elderflower and elderberry sound pretty similar, that’s because they are both from the same plant species. The shrub itself is called elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra. Medicinal parts of the elderberry plant include the flowers and berries. The flowers and berries of the shrub are both used in food and natural health remedies. 

Continuously gaining insights from around the world contribute to a company’s sustainable competitive advantage both locally and internationally. Magalies marketers, Herman du Preez and Morné du Plessis attended the recent IFT16 show in Chicago, Illinois, USA, held between 16 and 19 July 2016, to investigate what the “hot topics” currently are in both food technology and the retail market in the USA.

Magalies’ Limpopo depot based in Polokwane, South Africa, is starting a new chapter with new goals and has moved to a new building on the 30th of May 2016.

The aim has always been to strive to deliver the best possible service and products to customers in the Limpopo province.

Magalies’ own running sensation, Goodwill Leburu, completed the grueling 90km ‘’down-hill’ Comrades Marathon that was hosted on Sunday, 29 May 2016, from Pietermaritzburg to Durban. This was his second finish, which he completed in true Comrades spirit. A terrible knee injury around the half-way mark nearly shattered his dreams and months of hard preparation…!

Two cricket teams from Magalies have competed in the 6-A-Side Tournament hosted by Into Cricket on the 28th of May, at the Brits Cricket Club grounds.  This is simply a quicker, shorter version of the game. Each team entered a maximum of eight players from which six were drawn to play in matches which consisted of only 5 bowling overs.
