Celebrating The Protection of Rooibos Under EU Law

Just like champagne, rooibos enjoys Protected Designation of Origin status under EU law – and here at Klipopmekaar, we’re very proud that the amazing indigenous plant we farm high in the Northern Cederberg has been recognised by this protection, which is the first in Africa!
To find out more, pour yourself a delicious cup of rooibos and raise a toast to our botanical heritage as you watch the YouTube video below, which has been issued by the South African Rooibos Council
