The Litterboom Project started in 2017 as an alternative to beach clean-ups, by focusing on river systems and establishing these interception devices (larger HDPE pipes) to prevent floating plastics from flushing down river and into the ocean. 80% of marine plastic pollutions come from the rivers and by creating these catchment mechanisms, they became a more efficient way to stop the plastic pollution. Since our pilot in 2017, we have grown into over 10 major river systems around South Africa, with a presence in Cape Town and Durban.

The important thing about honey...

For the past decade, Wedgewood has been working to create sustainable beekeeping partnerships with African beekeepers and farmers, to ensure that the bees making our honey live happy lives and that the communities that care for them benefit from this valuable African resource. Wedgewood supports local beekeepers in the picturesque Northern KZN Rift Valley, practicing ethical beekeeping practices and using hives donated by Wedgewood. Our Zambian honey originates from the sustainably harvested beekeeping project in the Miombo Woodland.


Two years ago, we constructed our own bespoke nut cracking facility on the Wedgewood farm, to secure the finest nuts for our nougat. Our relationships with our partnering farmers have been so successful that we are now able to offer high quality nuts, surplus to our own needs, to other confectionery manufacturers for local and export markets.
