Why did you decide to become RWS certified?
Looking at the RWS standards, we saw the opportunity to establish an industry-wide standard for sustainable farming practices. South African farmers in general need to take extra care of their animals since it is a difficult environment. We liked the idea that we will produce according to market requirements.  We support the way of thinking about sustainability and animal welfare.  These values are deeply entrenched in the South African way of thinking.

What does working with the RWS mean for you?
It means that our product appeals to a customer that holds the same values we do. We had to take a long hard look at our own practices, and adapt where necessary. It is always good to have a fresh pair of eyes looking at old practices. Since we have started working with RWS we have changed, a number of old practices.  We have found that our producers easily adapted to the new way of thinking.
