Support Local Brands this Christmas

Date : 25 November 2016

We all have ‘that’ one friend or family member who always seems to buy everyone the perfect gift. For most of us, gift shopping is an afterthought as we have so much to plan, including meals, activities and holiday plans. However, there is a solution to personalising your gifts by supporting our wonderful local brands. Because who wants to get caught up in the boring and over processed products that all look the same. Rather support local creatives who are carving their path.

By choosing to support local this Christmas not only will you delight your family in personalised gifts with a touch of South African flair, but if each and every one of you can try to buy at least one person in your family a locally produced gift, it will help grow the economy, keep money in our country and help create employment.

At Eveready we are proud of our country, people and brands. As a company, we feel that there is a great importance which needs to be placed on nurturing local businesses, which use local workers and serve local consumers, as this will help us become less dependent on imports.

We have proudly been serving our country and communities since 1937 and are proud to be South Africa’s only battery manufacturer. We understand the importance of supporting local brands, as we see the growth in our own employees and communities that we serve.

This festive season we would like to encourage all our wonderful Eveready fans to make their Christmas gifts extra special by supporting local brands. We have put together a few local brands you could support by purchasing the gifts online in the comfort of your own home.
