Itâ€™s much easier to buy local when it is apparent where things come from and who owns whom. As I wasnâ€™t able to visit all the companiesâ€™ manufacturing operations, I confirmed via email with those brands that donâ€™t publicise their manufacturing practice that their goods/services mentioned in here are indeed made in South Africa. None of the companies in this book paid me to be mentioned. I received some free cosmetics from Godding & Godding which I passed on to a friend.
