Driven by the spirit of True Generosity – Tastic understands how education is a catalyst for change in many of their customers’ lives. As many of their children are prevented from pursuing their dreams due to a lack of funds to access higher education.

“As Tastic, we are pleased to announce that with the help of everyone who attended the Tastic Heritage Festival, we were able to raise R 1 395 000 for the Tastic Education Fund, with Tastic adding over a R100 000 to ensure that 60 students benefit from the fund. This amount is 50% higher than what the Tastic raised the previous year. Each student will be awarded R25 000 towards their funds ” says Thembi Sehloho, Tiger Brands Marketing Director: Rice and Pasta.

“I am beyond humbled by this iconic partnership with Tastic to help the next generation of youth access quality education. Whatever their passions may be – being allowed to prosper and explore your dreams is a gift many of our youth and pupils are never afforded.” Added SA’s renowned artist, Thandiswa Mazwai.
