Sustainably Sourced Fresh Produce
Sustainability is very important to us at Kambaku Lodges. Our goal has and always will to ensure we make as small of an impact on the environment around us. One of the initiatives we are very proud to be a part of is the collaborative partnership with Indalo and the Timbavati Foundation allowing us to offer sustainably sourced fresh produce.
The partnership will also allow Indalo and the Timbavati to cocreate an Enterprise Supplier Development Programme to build and support a cohort of carefully selected community-based enterprises that will be contracted to supply
goods and services required by the lodges.
The approach is to stagger the procurement process in a lean manner, starting at a lower base and preferably link to the current supplier network in order to create a safety net and guarantee uninterrupted supplies to the lodges.
The cohort of suppliers will be selected from some of the Indalo Inclusive trained enterprises in the area as well as some that may be identified in collaboration with the lodge networks in Timbavati Private Nature Reserve
All of our fresh produce is grown and supplied by Benica Fruits and Veggies, located in Acornhoek they are a 100% Black Owned Company that supplies fresh fruit and vegetables to the surrounding hospitality industry.
Benica grows all the fresh fruit and veggies that they supply and it all undergoes stringent quality assurance controls to ensure that they supply a high quality product.
Not only do they supply lodges within the Timbavati Nature Reserve but they also sell their produce in 3 different stores as well as 6 local retailers.
