Last week I was invited to a factory tour at Fair Cape Dairies. To say I was excited was a slight understatement.
A factory tour
I arrived at the Fair Cape factory and greeted a group of fellow bloggers and food journalists.
After a quick briefing by the experienced and knowledgeable staff we were kitted out in factory gear and headed off to see where the magic happens.
I even got a pink hair net.
The first thing that was evident was how strict the hygiene policy is at the factory. We were shown how to scrub up correctly before entering the factory and at other areas we were asked to sanitise our hands again.
The factory is meticulously clean and temperatures are set to assist with the yoghurt making process.
Large shining silver containers containing the dairy that make our favourite yoghurt snacks greeted us.
We were then expertly guided through the factory and each process was explained to us.
I was, and still am fascinated by these amazing machines and the people that operate them with such precision.
I could have watched the process of yoghurt pots being made, filled and labeled all day.
This was such a fun, educational visit.
Why I love Fair Cape
As a household Fair Cape is our preferred dairy brand.
They have become a name I trust with high quality products and Hamish loves that Barney is on his favourite yoghurt and Batman on his milkshake.
But mostly, I know that by purchasing Fair Cape products I’m supporting a company that does it’s part to give back.
Fair Cape established the Fair Cape Cares Foundation in order to make a difference in the many beneficiaries they support.
By purchasing Fair Cape products and supporing the Fair Cape Cares Foundation events, you add to this amazing initiative.
Today,on International Charity Day, I would like to encourage you to ” do the right thing” and buy the Fair Cape charity yoghurt 6 packs. 50c from each pack goes back to the foundation to make a difference.
