Bamboo is one of nature’s most sustainable resources as it’s a natural regenerative. It is harder than traditional maple, which means it’s also harder on your knives. It’s the perfect eco-friendly option for the Panarottis pizza boards.


Since 1990, Panarottis have been welcoming guests to their restaurants, inviting them to enjoy their Italian-inspired pizza and pasta! Today, Panarottis continues that legacy in more than 114 restaurants here in Africa and Australia! JIMBU has had the privilege of supplying the Panarottis uniform since October, 2018. Today, the basket of products include promotional items, display items as well as training materials.

Panarottis is BIG on caring for our Earth. All of their restaurants are committed to environmental sustainability and minimising the impact we have on the environment

the challenge

It was a “natural” choice that Panarottis would request bamboo pizza boards to serve pizza on. Unfortunately, local manufacturing of bamboo products in South Africa has not commercialised yet and the only option was to consider an import.

“Sustainability has never been more relevant than in 2020 following the outbreak of COVID-19.”
Joe Stead | Spur Corp.

the solution

Our research led us to the mountainous regions of Fujian Province, China, where bamboo and bamboo manufacturers are plentiful. Together with our Chinese team, factory inspections, product development and product samples were instructed. On product approval, we worked with our shipping agents to prepare the most commercially viable logistics options.

the result

As a result of our research and development, product development and logistics handling, JIMBU has successfully facilitated Panarottis request for bamboo boards.

“Our Eco Journey is an ongoing one, and we continue to work with our suppliers to introduce viable alternatives, in alignment with our objective of working towards a sustainable future, today.”Panarottis
