The cheekiness of the Nandos brand explained

The Daily Maverick in partnership with Nandos will be hosting The Gathering Media Edition on 3 August. This full day event, aimed at discussing the importance of media in South African society.

Former finance minister Pravin Gordhan, owner and chair of De Morgenzon Wine Estate Wendy Appelbaum, and the DA's Phumzille van Damme will be among those speaking at the event.

Chief marketing officer at Nandos South Africa, Doug Place, says they are passionate about giving voice to issues that are considered of acute importance at a corporate level, and the media is in the heart of it, he says.

You are what you eat and a lot of what we consume is media, so if you are consuming fake media and propaganda, that doesn't bode well in the functioning of a very happy and healthy economy in a country we all want to live in.
