Eastern Region Kapana cook-off attracts many

by Staff writer

The Eastern Region Kapana cook-off over the weekend attracted over 40 participants in  Gobabis at the Omaheke Mega-save shopping complex in town for the first time since its inception in 2014.

 The competition yielded five winners from the normal cook-off category and three winners in the professional chef’s category who will now compete at the grand finale in Windhoek on a date yet to be announced.

The competition, which was mostly entered by Gobabis kapana vendors, attracted a large crowd of spectators who came to cheer in support of the participants.

According to MeatMa’s Sales Representative Local Markets & Value Addition, Griffith Uahindua, MeatMa was once again pleased to be part of this eastern round.

“We congratulate all the winners who are through to the final round. We are also pleased to learn that all the Kapana vendors here in the east purchase their meat from Metro Stores which also stocks MeatMa products. We hope participants from constituencies such as Otjinene; Epukero; Aminuis and Rietfontein will enter the competition in the coming years as it becomes popular amongst the region’s communities.

She added that the competition has impact livelihoods greatly through bringing services and opportunities offered by the competition closer to the people added.

MeatMa, in conjunction with its partners Nedbank; Namibia Chefs Association; Namib Mills and Pick n Pay will host the central region's competition next in Windhoek at the newly revamped Black Chain shopping centre’s Pick n Pay parking in Katutura.
