Buffet Olives – Major Sponsor of Bestmed Tour of Good Hope 2016

Buffet Olives is proud to be a major sponsor of the Bestmed Tour of Good Hope for the second year in a row. The cycle tour celebrates the beautiful region of Paarl, which is also the setting for our superior olives.

This year, in conjunction with Buffet Olives, the Bestmed Tour of Good Hope will bring a purse of R55 000 to the time-trial part of the race. The total amount will be divided among both the professional and amateur riders who excel.

The five-day, five-stage road race will take place from 29 February to 4 March 2016, and will start on the La Paris Estate situated between Paarl and Franschhoek. The tour spans 515 kilometres, and boasts a 6 168-metre vertical ascent. Four of the stages end at the Paarl Taal Monument. A definite highlight of the tour is the iconic Four Passes Route, taking in the Helshoogte, Sir Lowry’s, Viljoen’s and Franschhoek passes.

The health benefits of olives for an active person are just one of the reasons why it makes good sense for Buffet Olives to join forces with this prestigious cycling event. The olive is nutritious and mineral-rich, providing essential multi-vitamins and amino acids to help sustain active bodies. It also contains oleic acid, which has properties that protect the heart. And for those overworked muscles, olives offer phenolic compounds that are both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. You can get all of this and more from the sun-ripe flavour of the Cape’s own Mediterranean-style olives that are unique to Buffet Olives.

Join Buffet Olives at the Bestmed Tour of Good Hope 2016 as we celebrate the fruits of discipline and endurance in a beautiful setting – much like our olives.
