Local lady farmer to supply fresh produce to The Maslow
As part of its promise to help build sustainable communities through supporting small enterprise development, Sun International’s The Maslow has partnered with Gugu Mlipha, founder of Gugu & Daughters Farming near Walkerville in Gauteng to provide vegetables and other fresh produce for use in the hotel’s kitchens.
The pioneering farmer will also be growing specific plants and Asian ingredients at the request of The Maslow’s new Executive Chef, Jason Millar, to support the hotel’s Lacuna Bistro’s new menu. Mlipha has already spent considerable time with Chef Millar to understand what sort of vegetable cuts are required to ensure optimal consistency and quality in line with his requirements.
As part of the initiative, TEP will provide additional training, mentorship and developmental initiatives to the business, aligned with The Maslow’s commitment to the sustainability of the project.
