“TAU SA is convinced that food does not have color, and as a result, members of the union produce food to all consumers in the country and even to residents of our neighboring states without imposing conditions,” said Mr. Louis Meintjes, the president of TAU SA. “We are outspoken advocates of the free market system and the recognition of private ownership and, consequently, we believe that this provision implies certain compulsion on individual entrepreneurs regarding their preferred economic choice and right to association that directly interfere with both Act 18 as well as Act 22 of the Constitution.”
