The careful preparation of clay-rich soils in Limpopo has enabled farmers to cultivate sunflowers without irrigation for the production of edible oil, enabling the sustainable growth of this crop in a water-scarce province, says global consumer goods company Unilever South Africa commodities procurement manager Ashton Eastman.
Sunflowers can be used to extract toxin such as lead, arsenic and uranium from contaminated soil. For example, sunflowers were used to remove toxins from a pond after the Chernobyl disaster and similar projects took place after the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
On the 16th of March 2015 CEOCO was privileged to host two VIP visitors from Unilever. Mr. Ashish Gupta the Procurement Manager - Commodities - Africa and Mr. Mbuso Mbuso Assistant Procurement manager - Commodities - Africa.

Another South African record was shattered at the 2014 Windpompfees, which was held from 1-3 May 2014 in Naboomspruit.

With a total length of 1557.15 meters long (Yes, more than one and a half kilometers), the previous records of 370m in 2010,500m in 2011,630m in 2012,760.1 m in 2013 and 1305m set by ALL GOLD in October 2014 has been well and truly shattered. A requirement is that the boerewors should be a continuous sausage.
