There is particularly a brand of rice that has embraced the notion of being part of so many a South African’s heritage celebration, that is Tastic rice. The brand announced at the beginning of the month that they have collaborated with designer extraordinaire Laduma Ngxokolo.
Ngxokolo, the founder of the iconic MAXHOSA Africa fashion line, has designed a limited edition pack for the brand.
“As an African brand that speaks to not only the Xhosa people I wanted to create a special and unique design that that will serve as an expression of unity to people across multiple South African cultures,” said the international knitwear designer.
The launch of the packaging was attended by many industry insiders such as Miss World Rolene Strauss, businesswoman Basetsana Khumalo, songstress Ntokozo Mbambo and socialite Tshepi Vundla.
