first_img Coega Dairy is also unique in the country for its ultra-high temperature (UHT) processing plant. “We are the first dairy company to invest in a plant design that is significantly more efficient than conventional UHT milk processing solutions available in other South Africa plants,” the company said. 3 October 2012 The Eastern Cape province’s eco-friendly Coega Dairy has become the first South African dairy to be awarded an ISO 22000 Food Safety System Certification, a sought-after international standard for food safety management, the company announced on Monday. Located in the Coega Industrial Development Zone (IDZ) just outside Port Elizabeth, the dairy produces Coastal View UHT milk and butter and has the smallest carbon footprint of any dairy throughout the southern hemisphere. The Coega Dairy factory has also been certified as Kosher and Halaal. ISO 22000 FSSC was the first single standard to attain worldwide recognition. It was introduced in 2004 to guarantee safety systems in companies that process animal products, perishable vegetable products, products with a long shelf-life, food ingredients with additives, vitamins, bio-cultures and food packaging material manufacturing. “This modern technology resulted in the exclusion of various steps in the production process, with subsequent cost savings and environmentally-friendly results.” The technology, known as OneStep, particularly allows for savings in water and energy consumption and improves production efficiencies.center_img “To be the first South African dairy to receive the sought-after international ISO 22000 FSSC certification is an exceptional honour for us,” chief executive officer of Coega Dairy, Hennie Kleynhans, said in a statement. “Before certification we completed an audit for the ISO 22000 Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) accreditation, which required a paper trail and quality checks from the farmer to the household.” “Since investing in the Coega IDZ, the dairy has produced exceptional results – from over delivering on environmental standards compliance, creating jobs and expanding operations – this accolade is another feather in the cap of one of our most successful investors,” said head of marketing and communications for the Coega Development Corporation, Ayanda Vilakazi.

first_img22 March 2013“Chinese Girl”, the iconic 1950 painting by Vladimir Tretchikoff, a Russian who settled in South Africa in 1946, was sold for a record £982 050 (R13.8-million) at Bonhams’ South African art sale in London on Wednesday.This exceeded the £300 000 to £500 000 the painting was expected to go for following worldwide interest in the sale, and is a record price both for a Tretchikoff work and for any South African artist.“Chinese Girl” was bought by British businessman and jeweler Laurence Graff, chairman of Graff Diamonds International, who owns the Delaire Graff Estate near Stellenbosch, where the painting will go on public display with the rest of his art collection.“This was an exceptional price for a work which really does merit the word ‘iconic’,” Giles Peppiatt, director of South African Art at Bonhams, said in a statement on Wednesday. “And it’s very happy news to hear that it is going home.”The highest-selling art print in history, in the 1950s and ’60s “Chinese Girl” captured imaginations “and pride of place above mantelpieces –across the globe, from South Africa to Australia, Britain to America,” according to Bonhams’ auction catalogue.The painting had been an unprecedented success during Tretchikoff’s tour of the US in 1953-4 and Canada in 1955, prompting him to reproduce it in the form of the large-scale lithographic print with which he would become synonymous.Unseen for many years, the original painting was once again exhibited in the landmark exhibition “Tretchikoff: The People’s Painter” at the South African National Gallery in 2011.Significantly, Tretchikoff out-performed the two long-time market leaders in South African art, Irma Stern and Jacob Hendrik Pierneef, at Wednesday’s auction. “Landscape Stellenbosch” by Pierneef made £713 250, while “Congolese Beauty” by Irma Stern was sold for £541 250. The whole sale of some 150 pictures by South African artists made £4.5-million.According to Bonhams, Tretchikoff’s value has risen exponentially in the art market, due both to the re-evaluation of his legacy in exhibitions and his appearances at recent auctions at Bonhams.Tretchikoff’s semi-nude “Portrait of Lenka (Red Jacket)”, featuring his lover and muse, recently sold for £337 250 (R4.7-million).“Just over 100 Tretchikoff works have appeared at auction, a 20-year trajectory which charts a remarkable resurgence in the artist’s popularity,” Bonhams noted.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

first_imgCome London 2012 all eyes would be on the Indian hockey team as Bharat Chettri and his men would try sealing their passage to London in style with their victory at the Delhi qualifiers recently.While coach Michael Nobbs and his men have erased the shame of Beijing 2008, when India even failed to qualify for it, their quest to end the three-decade wait for a hockey Olympic medal would be tough and difficult.”We now have to work hard. We are now playing the top teams in the world. They are significantly better than us at this stage. We will improve. We will play against the teams which have been preparing for last six years and we have been into this for last six months,” warned a cautious Nobbs.However, team’s crucial player Sardar Singh was delighted at the achievement in the last few months and was hopeful of doing well in the games.”We are delighted at reaching the Olympics. We have performed better and are peaking at the right time,’ he said.Elated and ecstatic after erasing the shame of Beijing 2008, India’s hockey heroes have been celebrating their return to the game’s ultimate stage. Turning in a series of resounding performances, Chettri and his men stormed their way back to the Olympics with a triumphant show at the Delhi qualifiers. However, the team has been aware that its biggest challenge lies ahead.”It is going to be tough from here. We have to improve our game,” player Sandeep Singh admitted recently.advertisementPitted against the best in the business, Indian players would truly be tested in their quest for glory at London 2012. Having failed to make it to the top four since the 1984 Games, the Indians clearly have their task cut out. And it would take some doing for them to even improve from their eighth place finishes at Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004.But with the countdown to the Olympics entering its final 100-day stretch, the coach and his wards have set their goals at hitting top gear.”We will be here till we move to England which will be a pre-Olympic test. We will move on the 26th (of July). We will also travel to Australia and Germany,” Nobbs said in Pune.For a nation that has sealed Olympic glory a record eight times, London 2012 presents an opportunity for resurrection and redemption. And a billion would be going all out to cheer their favourite heroes to make it count at the game’s biggest stage.- With inputs from Pankaj Khelkar in Punelast_img read more
