Rooibos Limited honours long-service employees

Since 1954, Rooibos Limited has been the preferred supplier of Rooibos to the world. Since its modest beginnings, this company has gained a wealth of experience in the production and development of Rooibos into a wide range of products.

Each year, the management team at Rooibos Limited awards their long-service employees with trophies in appreciation of their dedicated service.

This year, Rooibos Ltd acknowledges 14 employees who have been with the company for at least five years. 

“The idea behind the awards is to show our appreciation to our hard-working employees,” Gerda de Wet, Communication Manager at Rooibos Limited, said.

“Long-service awards are important because there is a correlation between a company’s stability and the number of long-serving employees working there. These employees help to carry forward the institutional knowledge of Rooibos Limited. We are proud of them,” De Wet added. 

Rooibos Limited has honoured staff who have completed 5, 10, 25, or 30 years of uninterrupted service at their headquarters in Clanwilliam.
