Marketing open food markets on Sound Bites with Edward Chamberlain-Bellon Radio Today Johannesburg.

By Edward Chamberlain-Bell

1. The topics are markets and marketing. Open food markets are springing up everywhere, but it’s not so easy to get yourself started, so Edward Chamberlain-Bell got the inside scoop from Balkan Burger Bar and Simply Wild Sauces to find out how they got started, what obstacles they faced and what makes their products so unique and special.
Balkan Burger Bar is a family stall run only on Saturdays and Sundays, when the family mobilises on the weekend to serve the best Balkan styled burgers in town. Lidja & Bojan Ivanovic say their aim is to build their burgers on three principles: use only the best local ingredients, what looks good tastes good too and they believe that you make it like you’re
going to eat it yourself!

2. Simply Wild Sauces has been in development for the past 26 years, and you can taste it. They have a wide range of chillies, pestos, mayonnaises and chutneys that cater for every palate. Whatever you buy from Simply Wild Sauces, Edward says you’re guaranteed of a taste sensation that has true depth and flavour- turns out that Shaun, owner of Simply Wild Sauces is a self-trained chef.

3.WebWin is South Africa’s fastest growing free online competition website where you can win incredible prizes from skincare, cars and even over-seas holidays. WebWin’s owner, Donovan Steyl explains how listeners can win awesome prizes while businesses can take advantage of their site by hosting their own competitions. It’s a win-win situation!
