You’d be surprised how many people benefit with every meal you order
Behind every restaurant meal is a story of the people who made it, from the farms to the kitchens and in-between. In fact, over 28 people* may have directly benefited from your last takeout or dine-in. Now that’s food for thought. With over 1.8 million people employed ** in restaurant and takeaway outlets across SA, One Meal Many Thanks is our way of championing those heroes and saluting you, the customer, for doing your part to help an industry thrive again.

IN SUPPORT OF THE RESTAURANT AND FOOD SERVICES INDUSTRY
A newly formed consortium of South Africa’s biggest food service suppliers, namely Unilever Food Solutions, RCL FOODS, McCain Foodservice and Tiger Brands Out of Home, have partnered with leading food service distributor, Bidfood.
“Our priority has been to engage and partner with government agencies such as the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) and the Federation Hospitality Association of Southern Africa (FEDHASA) as well as the Restaurant Collective lobby group, and to communicate and promote safe operations in the new COVID-19 reality,” says Stewart Jones from RCL FOODS.
By helping the industry, this collaboration has at its heart the many people that restaurants employ.
