ABOUT BERRY HILL TRADING
Sibusiso Tshabalala, owner of Berry Hill Trading, set up his business after visiting the family farm in Volksrust. You see, his grandfather had a small-scale charcoal and woodcutting venture and Sibusiso's dream was to set South Africa on fire. Would he be able to cultivate the business, despite limited funds?
"I took a big risk when I started Berry Hill Trading," he says. "But my wife supported me all the way." He also received assistance from a Pick n Pay mentorship programme. Among other things, PnP built a large, waterproof warehouse for Berry Hill Trading. Sibusiso explains he was surprised by PnP's attention, but he's glad for the support. "If Pick n Pay hadn't taken an interest in us, we wouldn't have succeeded. They guided and led me, and introduced me to other people who could help my business grow."
These days, Sibusiso is able to supply PnP stores across SA with his products - in doing so, he's bringing South Africa together. "Braaing makes me think of family, being together and spending time with the people you love. In our community you never make fire alone because people talk, eat and share ideas over fire.".
To keep the spirit of braai's alive, promote proudly South African products and create more jobs. We also plan to grow our business further and provide more innovative products and services
