Edamame Development Program
Edamame is a highly nutritious bright green vegetable-type and nonGMO soybean originally grown in the east for human consumption and now popular in the west as a tasty and protein rich ‘Superfood’ snack.
We currently grow Edamame at our Fair Food GlobalGAP certified Anchor Farm and process our beans frozen and roasted through our HACCP accredited processing facility in Mariannhill, KZN. The programs Partner Farmer model, currently supports over 90 emerging contract farmers who contribute to produce over 40 tons of Edamame beans per season.
Developing this new industry in South Africa requires significant and continuous investment in research & development and farmer support to enable us to bring quality product to the market each year.
Currently you can find our frozen green Edamame at selected national Woolworths retail stores. Also look out for our shelled Edamame in WW Cafes Edamame infused fresh salads.
Our delicious processed product is available in our varied customers ranges and our own range of Edamame protein dips, pastas and roasted snack products are due for release in 2018.
