“There is a great opportunity here to expand the marula value-chain beyond just the production of traditional morula (correct) beer and raw marula supply to Distell,” says Sekoati. “The marula fruit is very high in Vitamin C and can be used for juice production as well as other products such as marula jam and for use in cosmetics. We are looking at working with the University of Limpopo at the hub to do research into marula uses and beneficiation.”
