Made in ZA was born in April 2020, during the Covid-19 Lockdown in South Africa.
Some aspects of the lockdown stood out for us, and there was only so much which could be done being in lockdown:
- Escalating amount of people going hungry
- Limited or no household income
- Businesses had to close doors
- People were uncertain if they had jobs or not
South Africans are too dependant on imported products, and with the turbulent exchange rate, it made the cost of living go up significantly. Why should we when we are able to produce goods locally, create employment, and stimulate the economy.
We are a platform, which promotes South African Products and Brands.
