In South Africa on November 1, 2019, a benefit sharing agreement was reached after many years of intense negotiations. This industry wide agreement was the first of its kind, and was launched between the Khoikhoi and San people, and the rooibos industry.
Professor Sylvia Wollenhoven from the University of Johannesburg produced a documentary film on this historic agreement, and to commemorate International Tea Day, Indigenous Rights Radio spoke to the Professor about the film Rooibos Restitution.
