Good Food & Co
The airy interior at Good Food & Co's new Bijoux Square premises

Fans of Good Food & Co will be glad to learn that after a month of being deprived of their favourite deli products and heat & eat meals they have now reopened in their new centrally-located premises at Bijoux Square. To go with the move Chef Nico Vorster has also created four brand new menus – including a vegan one – to tempt locals and visitors to savour their fare. Another new addition is Truth Coffee which can be enjoyed indoors, in the courtyard or as a take-away. All the friendly front-of-house faces are also back to welcome guests with efficient service and a friendly smile. It really is as they say: Good things come to those who wait.”

Opening times: Sun & Mon: 08h00 – 17h00 Tue – Sat: 08h00 – 21h00 (Book online or phone)

From Paw Paws and Baobab to Litchi and Titch

Litchi & Titch's Lecia Durham & Debbie Shriekker

A new shop – almost entirely devoted to soft, smooth skin – has recently opened opposite the Franschhoek Town Hall. The Tatler stopped by to find out more.

Litchi and Titch is the brainchild of Lecia Durham with business partner Debbie Schriekker – respectively the Litchi and Titch in the business’ name. Lecia and Debbie both have sales and marketing backgrounds and share a passion for all things natural and environmentally conscious, especially cosmetics. Starting a business to profit from their passion seemed a logical step, so they took it in 2017. Their first product, a paw paw balm, proved an instant success and they soon started adding other products to the range.

Woolworths Franschhoek to Go Single-use Plastic Bag Free

Woolworths’ new low cost reusable bag

Woolworths’ Franschhoek store will be single-use plastic shopping bag free from 9 November.  Despite Covid-19 lockdown disruptions, this is part of a national 121-store rollout in response to Woolworths’ commitment to phase out single-use plastic bags.

Since making this commitment Woolworths has launched a ‘low cost’ reusable bag in food stores and a paper bag for its fashion, beauty and home purchases and has already successfully switched 25 stores to being single-use plastic shopping bag free.  Both bags are made locally by supplier development beneficiaries and constructed from either fabric made from recycled plastic (PET) or Forest Stewardship Council-certified recycled content, sourced from the same mill where Woolworths (FSC N002141) sends its recyclable cardboard and paper.

“Smart, sustainable solutions often take time to get off the ground but when they do, they change our world for the better instantly.  While Covid 19 has impacted our roll out, we remain committed in our journey to remove single use plastic from our stores. Together with our customers we are looking forward to removing all single use plastic bags from our stores.” concludes Feroz Koor: Woolworths Holdings Group Head of Sustainability.
