Braai Green

Sustainability of the use of renewable resources

Environmental Awareness

Braai Green with Safari. The sustainability of the use of renewable resources is the core focus of our environmental policy. Safari fully supports all environmental concerns raised pertaining to our industry. We have an environmental management plan in place to reduce energy consumption and to optimize the usage of raw materials.

We support local projects in the Southern and Eastern Cape region for the eradication of alien trees from catchment areas to improve water run-off into rivers and dams. All usable wood is recycled into charcoal and braai wood. We currently support six independent contractors who make a livelihood from this ‘recycling’ of alien wood. 

Our charcoal is sourced from Namibia. The Namibian department of forestry has stringent measures in place where the farmers’ land is being inspected by the authorities prior to issuing harvesting permits for the production of charcoal. Harvesting is restricted to the eradication of intruder bush such as Sekelbos, Swarthaak and similar species.

We have our own in-house paper, cardboard and plastic recycling programme.

Environmental Policy Statement

We recognize our duty to ensure, so far as is reasonably practical, that the environment will not be damaged by our operations, manufacturing of green braai products and will co-operate fully with the authorities to meet statutory, legal and other obligations. 

Braai Green with Safari:

Safari is committed to contribute to the conservation of our environment, and has been investing the past 5 years in researching the production of fuel from plastic waste.

We are now proud to announce that our Bio-lites are manufactured from fuel produced from the recycling of plastic. Further to this, we use charcoal produced from invasive tree species, to enfuse into the firelighter for a better burn. Go Green, and Braai Green with Safari!

Sekelbos trees in Namibia which have invaded natural Savanah land, is being harvested for the production of charcoal and primarily used as raw materials for Safari charcoal and briquettes.
