The Clover Visitor Centre gives a unique insight into the company’s bottling and packaging activities while also providing an insightful tour, followed by a few games and a delicious product goodie bag that can be taken home post tour.

Prof Elain Vlok, Manager of Corporate Services at Clover explains that “It all started with a vision to share the magic of our industry with many people who do not know the beauty of the behind the scenes and the work that goes unnoticed in order to deliver stellar products. We wanted to share this wealth of knowledge with the public at large. We look forward to continuing to provide an educational experience to our visitors by bringing the story of dairy and Clover to life.’’

The Clover Visitors Centre is designed with great emphasis on sustainability and this is reflected by their exceptional performance in terms of electricity and water usage. Clover’s continuous improvement approach, based on their Way Better philosophy, seeks to improve on these statistics continuously.

The educational and insightful tours offered at the centre have something to offer for everyone. The main aim of the tours is to educate people in a fun and engaging manner because Clover believes that the story of milk, where it comes from and its numerous benefits, is a story worth telling.
