In this issue of Made in SA, we share the sentiments of Proudly South African and assert that supporting local brands and products is now a matter of survival.

As we begin to revive the local economy, we must shift our focus from relying so heavily on imports from a single source, and expand our local product offerings. So in this issue, we not only pay homage to the rich history of SA innovations and brands, we also take a look at SA firsts: we’re now growing saffron in SA, and we’re about to trial cashless shopping.

We also introduce creative inventors looking to solve social and economic issues: have you heard about the Solar Turtle Connectivity Kiosk, or safe owl houses being made from plastic?

Well, for more great local innovations, read this issue of Made in SA.
