Feedback From Our Previous Exhibitors

Colleen Murphy, Karootjie

I generated leads, found suppliers and was able to establish collaborations with other brands. Participation in the SA Cheese Festival established my brand as not a fly-by-night.

Uma Govender, Masala Cafe

Customers contacted me after the show to supply them with raw products. The show has been a huge success in terms of growth for us.

Leon Bussio, Deep South Distillery

The SA Cheese Festival is a great "brand" to be associated with and a wonderful opportunity to introduce our brand and products to visitors.
