Did you know that every time you buy chocolate or fudge infused with Amarula Cream, you're helping to sustain poor rural communities and promote animal conservation. That's because a percentage of the retail price of your purchase goes to the not-for-profit Amarula Trust. If you can resist the temptation, these must-have confection items also make great gifts and are available from leading supermarket chains.
All hand-crafted by renowned confectioner, Kees Beyers, the Amarula Cream-infused dark and milk chocolates retail for around R45 for a pack of ten and R76 for 20, while an 11-piece box of melt-in-your-mouth fudge, infused with Amarula Cream, sells for around R33.
The Amarula Trust runs several job creation programmes and funds research into elephant behaviour for developing conservation management plans in southern African private and public game parks. Amongst its many other projects, it also provides bursaries for basic studies into field guiding for deserving rural candidates in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana.
