Venishree Mayer On Newsbreak Women Economy

In the second edition of the Women's Economy Wednesday's, SABC Newsbreak Executive Producer, Salma Patel speaks to olive oil aficionado Venishree Mayer.

Venishree and Juergen Mayer indulged in the quaint farm life after they purchased Fraaigelegen Farm in 2016. The well-travelled couple resigned from their corporate roles in Germany, travelled for a few months in their camper van with Afra (a German Hovawart breed) through the Nordic and Baltic States and then did the bold move with Afra to the stunning Tulbagh Valley in South Africa. They have now settled in their new roles as wine and olive producers and have a wonderful local team to support them. The couple are also proud recipients of the award-winning 2018 ADHARA EVOO extra virgin oil and looks forward to launching their first wine label.

Olive oil aficionado, Venishree Mayer, has urged women to step out of their comfort zones and try something different. A successful South African businesswoman, Venishree is now looking to further her brand by tapping into the European market. On Women Economy Wednesday, Salma Patel speaks to Mayer getting an insight into her amazing journey.
