Ace introduced the new Quick Cook maize meal product to Durban University of Technology (DUT) students on Wednesday.
The promoting crew was giving students a chance to taste the meal they were cooking at Steve Biko campus, giving them free 500g to try to cook at home and demonstrating to them,

“The product tastes the same as the normal Ace I’m used to buy, and what amazes me is that it gets ready in just 10 minutes which is going to help to have more time studying rather than
worrying about long hours cooking,” said Khumalo.

I couldn’t judge very well on how this maize meal tastes like because I was just taking what’s in the plate not minding the taste,” said Mpanza.
The students and staff members were encouraged to take part on the Facebook photo competition so they could win great prizes and Njabulo Innocent led the way for the winners.
