Media Alert: Premier Zille to Visit Equity Share Scheme in Lutzville
On Friday, 2 September 2011, Western Cape Premier Helen Zille and Western Cape Minister for Agriculture Gerrit van Rensburg will visit an equity share scheme in Lutzville.
Lutouw Estates is a 420-hectare farming project in Lutzville in which farm workers hold a 40% share. This project also includes an innovative empowerment programme where farm workers are being assisted to establish specialised business units that will be contracted to carry out work on the farm. Proceeds from the contracts will be used, in part, to assist in paying for their shares.
Premier Zille and Minister van Rensburg will be taken on a tour of the farming project and will interact with farm workers and management of Lutouw Estates.
All media are invited to attend.
