Proudly South African creates an authentic Food Village at DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival on 7 & 8 October

Proudly South African will be taking 16 of its member companies to the DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival on 7th to 8th October where they will be creating a Proudly South African Village of delicious food. The Proudly South African Village has been made possible with the support of African Bank.

Amongst the culinary offerings will be Mash Braai House, Seven Khalaz, Ya Mama Gemmer, Takis Biltong, Sweet Gift Bakery & Catering, and the infamous Sihle's Brew with his fresh coffee. The Village will also see the exciting launch of Chef Nompumelelo Mqwebu's first book, Africa Meets Europe, in which she blends European dishes with uniquely African ingredients.

Each one of our members has something unique to offer the Festival,” said Proudly South African Chief Officer, Marketing & Communications, Happy MaKhumalo Ngidi. “Our Village will be cooking, literally! We are so excited to be showcasing so many of our members from this sector, and to have such diverse displays of cuisine, including a cook book!

Said African Bank’s Head of Marketing Kaibe Mollo, “Proudly South African’s Village aligns perfectly with our own consumer messaging of ‘We are you’. Our identity is often defined through our food, and a unique space for expressing who we are had great appeal for us. We look forward to interacting with existing and potential customers in a fun and informal family environment, and enjoying the food and music along with everyone else!

The Proudly South African Village, brought to the Festival by African Bank, will be located on the main track close to the sound stage.
