Gigi and Pier Luigi Passerini – Windmeul Eggs
Father-and-son team, Gigi, 69 and Pier Luigi Passerini, 34, are partial business owners of Windmeul Eggs, a company that produces PnP’s free-range, all-grain, canola and Humpty Dumpty eggs. “We are three families- the Passerinis, Stuarts and Malans- who had a common goal 34 years ago to produce and market high quality farm-fresh eggs to our customers,” explains Pier.
“My father was instrumental in starting the company and I have been with him for eight years.” Windmeul Eggs, which is based on Paarl, employs approximately 400 people, many of whom live on the farm. “Our main focus is not only producing farm-fresh eggs,” says Pier, “but to constantly improve the well-being of our staff and their families. We have a very special relationship with our clients and employees and that shows in the quality of the product we offer our customers daily. We firmly believe in Mr Ackerman’s approach: ‘Doing good is good business’.”
Windmeul Eggs are available at selected PnP stores nationwide: www.windmeuleggs.co.za ; 021 869 8150.
