Did you know? You can now buy frozen edamame benas from Woolies, which are supplied exclusively by a community development and job empowerment project in KwaZulu-Natal.
Edamame beans are young soya beans in their pods, commonly eaten in Japan, China and Korea. And we’re growing them in SA! The Newlands Mashu Community Development Centre has been working with emerging farmers, in partnership with commercial growers and academic research instiutations, to make these legumes (which contain high-quality protein), available locally. Approximately 500 jobs have been created by the project and100 small growers have been trained, mentored and supported. Snack on them, or add to soups, salads and noddles and rice dishes.
