Leading poultry producer Astral Foods has pledged R90 000 towards a collaborative water-saving initiative in the Western Cape.
The food manufacturing firm has followed suit after Shoprite Group partnered with CapeTalk and other companies to install water-monitoring devices at 100 Cape schools.
The project is expected to save millions of litres of water at Cape Town’s top 100 high-volume water-using schools.
Astral Foods has pledged R90 000, which will cover the costs for an additional three locals schools.
R 30 000 per school is required for the project. This includes the smart water meter installation, plumbing interventions, and maintenance for one year.
Astral Food Limited MD Andy Crocker has thanked Shoprite for launching the positive and impactful initiative.
