Gauteng has been bubbling with excitement these past few months. WWF-SASSI partnered with the Johannesburg Zoo for their Arbor Day expedition on the 15th September. SASSI engaged with over 1000 primary school students on the importance of marine plants and impacts of our seafood choices. The kids thoroughly enjoyed their time at the SASSI stand and loved learning about our oceans. Earlier this year, SASSI was invited to speak and be part of a crucial panel discussion at the Food and Hospitality Africa Show (May 2017) and Africa’s Big 7 (June 2017). The Food and Hospitality Show 2017 is the largest Pan-African food, drink, and hospitality show where SASSI spread the message of the importance of being a sustainable seafood supplier and consumer. SASSI took centre stage at the Africa’s Big 7 show being part of a panel discussion focusing on the call for sustainable seafood practices from boat to plate. Africa’s Big 7 is the only food and beverage trade show in Africa to bring together hundreds of global farm to fork suppliers with motivated buyers from each segment of the buying community. Looking ahead, Gauteng is gearing up for Marine Week 2017 and an exciting chefs expedition we are calling from ‘’Soweto to Sodwana’’. Lookout on our website for more exciting news to follow!
