Food Industry is one of the job creators in South Africa especially here in Cape Town as we have many Restaurant which means its also a Competitive Industry.

Fruit Salad by Fruitilethu
Fruitilethu is a company that deals with Fruit salads, it was started by 4 young entrepreneurs at school to stop the stigma that people from the township don't eat healthy food. Their business started as a school project and from the success of it their lecturer encouraged them to continue with it. Although they are not from the same townships, that did not stop them from going after their dreams.

The Fruitilethu company consists of 6 members. The name Fruitilethu was derived from Fruit and Gugulethu combined to show diversity. They are all young so they have weekly meetings to motivate each other.

They reach out to people through social networks because they feel that it is easier that way. Their biggest challenge at the moment is finding a balance between school and the business because school on it's own takes most of their time but in regards to food industry in the township there's none because they have to focus on their business
