Fresh Living remains SA’s top-selling food magazine because it is a real read about food that real people cook and eat; it has no pretensions and comfortably portrays our tone of voice. Both the moment when the reader settles down to enjoy her favourite mag, to the time thereafter where she cooks the recipes, are precious parts of the relationship we have with our customers. It is why we have now expanded the conversation to TV, with our editor Justine Drake hosting the Just Cooking TVshow, in association with Fresh Living.

Adrian Naude

Marketing Director, Pick n Pay
