In keeping with this year’s theme of ‘Inspiring Change’ we would love to hear from you about how Fry’s has helped you to Inspire Change in your own life; this could be a story about how Fry’s helped you or a loved one to change your diet to improve your health, or how you’ve used Fry’s to introduce friends and family to the benefits of a plant-based diet – or any other way that Fry’s products, events or other messaging has helped you. 

We’ll showcase the stories at The #FrysAGM, and our favourite story will WIN A FRY’S HAMPER WORTH R2000! Only attendees of the Fry's Annual Green Meeting: Inspiring Change (Joburg) are legible to win the prize. Enter by sending us an inbox message with your story and the words INSPIRING CHANGE at the top of the message.
