In South Africa, Bowman Ingredients supports an ongoing corporate social responsibility programme to empower members of disadvantaged communities. We provide specially designed kitchens in shipping containers to enable local people to launch and run their own successful restaurant businesses.
As well as designing the container kitchens, we have developed recipes, menus and a handbook of restaurant procedures. Our role also includes providing education and training for the local business owners and their staff.
To date we have helped to establish seven container kitchen restaurants in and around the Cape Town area. All the restaurant outlets are operating profitably, selling low cost, high quality, nutritious food. We hope to continue to support this programme for many years.
