The South African Whole Grain Bread Project (SAWGBP), an internationally-acclaimed bakery business founded by Dan Leader, Neil and Leann Ratner, opened its first container bakery at the Nkosi’s Haven Village in Alan Manor, situated south of Johannesburg, South Africa.
Historically, whole grain breads have been an important part of traditional diets around the world, leading contemporary nutritionists to advocate for the consumption of whole grains as the building blocks of a healthy diet. The SAWGBP bread will be made from a proprietary blend of South African whole wheat, soy, cornmeal, seeds, and nutritional supplements, and will serve as a valuable source of proteins, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and folic acid (essential for the health of pregnant women and children).
SAWGBP has partnered with Macadams Baking Systems Ltd of South Africa to supply mobile container bakeries. Container World converted and donated the 20 foot container. The use of these portable fully equipped bakeries will be cost effective and create a model easily replicated in different parts of South Africa and beyond.
