A few weeks ago, we were honored to host a very unique and beautiful group of visitors…
12 children and 3 teachers from Nkowa Private School situated in Rivonia visited our manufacturing plant for a ‘hands on learning experience’, focusing on Mexican history and traditions though the products that we locally manufacture here in Midrand.
First you need to know how to make tortillas by hand!
For us, sharing our Mexican traditions, especially with children, through the products that we make has always been one of our favorite parts of working at Azteca. We always try to explain the processes through innovative and relevant concepts – making it fun for them.
Learning about each step of the process
The kids from Nkowa were very involved and interested in the diverse range of products and how, from different kinds of flour and other ingredients, and a few different processes, you can obtain either a wheat or corn tortilla and even a nacho chip!
Learning about the finished products and ingredients sold in the factory shop
We were so impressed as they asked very insightful questions related to the processes, different ingredients, times and temperatures. And the differences between corn and wheat flour. It was a real pleasure to share this experience with them.
In the end, we were so glad to hear that they enjoyed the field trip as much as we did – here are some of their beautiful ‘Thank You’ notes:
