I created Woody’s brand and set up Woodys Consumer Brands (Pty) Ltd with Oscar Klynveld. We later asked his two brothers to join us. Below I share some of my personal memories. I resigned from the company in August 2018. Here I share some of my memories. I also feature the memories and heritage of some of the great people we work with and the companies we interacted with.
I managed Van Wyngaardt for a year with Paul Fickling in March 2019, after which I dedicated my time to understanding and re-engineering fine meat pasts. My memories of the company are shared in the post below.
