Opening a business that you are passionate about, is the ultimate sign of faith and love for the country that it is opened in. This is especially true for Jaco De Witt, founder of Roast Re:public. Whether it’s supplying African coffee to fellow South Africans or using the profits from Roast Re:public to further the lives of other South Africans – his work, passions and dreams are entrenched in his love for SA.
He doesn’t doubt that we have challenges as a country, he just focusses his energy and thoughts on the possibilities instead. As a country, we have proven that we are the people who can change the world and we can do that if we look beyond our own self-interests and differences. Together we can move forward, with the love for SA.
