NEWS FROM AFG WORLDWIDE
Some exciting changes have been made within AFG-Worldwide. Tyrone Goodliffe has made the move to Multiflora, where he and Dre will look after our Multiflora branch. Tyrone is being trained to become our new buyer at the clock and he has taken over the reporting regarding prices, quality and general news worth knowing from Multiflora.
Tyrone will be the person to contact, if you want information about what is happening on the clock, where your protea and fynbos is concerned. He will, on a weekly basis, report to you via email what is happening at Multiflora. His main task is to provide better feedback to our suppliers with regards to your product at Multiflora. Together Dre and Tyrone will make sure our service is of a greater quality to all concerned.
With Tyrone leaving the office, we employed a new lady to assist Mirjam with the sales and office duties. Odette Visser has started in July and will be a great asset not only to Mirjam, but to you our client as well. Our webshop should be up and running in September and will make ordering for you so much easier as you can see what the product looks like as you order.
At the back office Wendy our bookkeeper, has moved to Australia to pursue a lifelong dream to be a full time mom. We will miss her for sure as she had become an intergral part of our team. Our new bookkeeper Mary Ann Harrison has joined us from the 1st of August and while still finding her feet she will then fit into the functioning of the company.
Within a week or two you will see the face to the name on our website.
From us it is all stations go and looking forward to the new season and dealings with you all
Kind regards Rene

Our Cape Greens and beautiful Protea’s were photographed were beautifully arranged and photographed a lot.
Leucospermum in season
It is the season for Leucospermum, also known as ‘Pin cushions’. The farms that supply farm fresh Leucospermum to AFG-Worldwide are located in Kwazulu-Natal. Due to the climate there, the Leucospermum are earlier in production than in the Cape Town region.
Leucospermum will be available from July until November. The season starts with the Orange Tango and Red Succession and later in the season the Yellow varieties will come into production.
New name and logo
On Saturday, 23 June 2012, Rene Schoenmaker and his team organised a function to unveil the new name of Bergflora Johannesburg at Usumbara Lodge in Krugersdorp. More than 100 guests attended. Amongst them growers who supply AFG-Worldwide with farm fresh products, colleagues from the industry, our partners for cargo; Morgan Cargo and Emirates, family and friends.
The new logo was unveiled by Willem Verhoogt (Bergflora) and Rene Schoenmaker (AFG-Worldwide) and Rene’s children.
It was a night to remember, with good food and lots of laughter. We would like to thank everyone who made this evening a success.
