If you were not there the previous 9 years you have missed out big time!  Truly a golf event few will forget!  This year is Magalies Citrus’ 10th Annual Charity Golf Day which is taking place on 15 September 2016 at the prestigious Copperleaf Golf Estate.

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 depot has been operating for 9 consecutive years, where very close customer relationships have been built over this period. 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.

Magalies was represented in the Adventure group by two teams. Magalies CEO, Hans du Preez, and son Herman, completed their 3rd Sani2c, and Hannes and Wihan du Preez completed their 2nd event this year.

Magalies was one of the proud sponsors of the 2016 30th Commemorative Forever Loskop Marathon, which took place on Saturday, 16 April 2016, in the heart of Mpumalanga Province, South Africa. This well-known, “regular on the running calendar” event hosts a 50km Ultra distance as well as a 21,1km Wild Challenge, and is an official qualifier for the Comrades Marathon on 29 May 2016.

C for Coconut

We look at the health benefits of coconut oil, coconut milk and coconut water. The popularity of coconut doesn’t end with hot-right-now coconut water. A variety of coconut-derived ingredients—from coconut oil to coconut milk—is increasingly being used in home kitchens, restaurants and packaged foods.

MAGALIES COCKTAILS – VOL. 3:  Icy Mango Daiquiri

The sun burns down on the earth as I make my way through the dry Karoo on a hot summer’s day.  The only thing that keeps me going is the thought of an ice-cold, smooth Mango Daiquiri that awaits me at the end of the day’s journey.

Would I have it as a thirst quencher or would I go full throttle with the added smoothness of rum and vodka? Decisions, Decisions…
