In ensuring that our employees receive value-added skills and career path development we also invest in providing them with international training and experience. In 2019, some of our Trainee Millers were selected to join the prestigious African Milling School in Kenya for an intensive 6-month apprenticeship program for millers.
Not only were they exposed to world-class milling techniques but they also had an abundance of new experiences such as their first plane flight, making friends and learning alongside people from all over the world, and dining on international cuisine.
“Experiencing Kenya, its people and culture, and attending the African Milling School has been the highlight of my career. This opportunity has given me a renewed interest in the milling industry – Jabu Mtsweni
“I have once again realised that food is more than just sustenance, maize meal is a culture on its own – TS Dlamini
We are proud to support such ambitious people in their studies and future careers and trust that we are not only fuelling individual passion but also hope for other young South Africans.
