Faithful To Nature

Faithful To Nature recently announced that they will be rolling out fresh produce and essentials delivery in Johannesburg. The store has partnered with local farms to bring you only the best fresh fruit and vegetables during the lockdown period. So, not only will you be saving yourself a trip to the grocery store, but you will be supporting local farmers whose livelihoods have been greatly affected by the lockdown. Faithful To Nature is offering fruit and veggie boxes in assorted quantities, as well as hygiene and cleaning products. Due to the volume of orders during the lockdown, deliveries many take a little longer to arrive. But they will still be delivering orders within 1 – 5 working days, so show your support by shopping at their online store.
