Being ahead of the trends curve is vital in today’s cut-throat food business – so hat’s off to FASA member Col’Cacchio on launching their cannabis pizza range!
Italian-inspired restaurant franchise Col’Cacchio and CBD brand africanpure have joined their respective expertise to introduce South Africa’s very first Cannabis pizza range. Following the landmark announcement in recent weeks by the Department of Health, all products that contain a maximum daily dose of 20mg of Cannabidiol (CBD) and are intended for general health enhancement or relief are exempted from the operation of the schedules to the Medicines Act and may now be legally purchased in SA.
The Col’Cacchio menu will feature two gourmet Cannabis inspired pizzas, namely the Green Goddess and the Not-So-Plain Mary Jane, which will be retailed at R125 and R140 respectively. The two pizzas will be drizzled with africanpure CBD oil, which contains no THC or synthetic chemicals. Customers will also be able to add CBD oil to any other dish on the Col’Cacchio menu at an additional cost of R25.
“At Col’Cacchio, we have always aimed to be innovative with our menu offering and provide our loyal fan base with the latest health positive trends. We love to stay ahead of the curve and are extremely proud to be the first restaurant in SA to launch a Cannabis pizza and look forward to seeing old and new faces in our restaurants coming in to try this exciting new range,” explains Kinga Baranowska, Col’Cacchio co-founder.
“We are really thrilled to be at the forefront of the Cannabis story in South Africa and to be working with one of the country’s most innovative restaurant franchise groups. Col’Cacchio is a model example of what we as africanpure are striving to achieve, using only the very best ingredients and providing wholesome accessible products to all our customers. We are certain that the new Cannabis offering at Col’Cacchio will be a massive hit,” says Mike Saunders, africanpure co-founder.
The new Cannabis pizza range will be available at all Col’Cacchio restaurants, excluding the Windhoek and Halaal restaurants.
