It runs in the family! We were born into a family blessed with green hands. Our father has been running a very successful gardening maintenance and spraying services company since the year 1990. Growing up, we had no option but to learn the ropes from the administration through to operational aspects of the business. Even when we were at boarding school, during school holidays we had our work cut out for us. Turned out we thoroughly enjoyed doing it while drinking from our Dad’s fountain of wisdom and tapping from his vast experience.
As such, even though Nutri Superfoods came into being in 2014, we have for years been in the gardening space and that naturally nudged us into the agricultural space. Nutri Superfoods is an exciting initiative sparked by the urge to make a positively impactful contribution towards addressing malnutrition challenges South Africa and the rest of our continent face and has led to a lot of research on food security, specifically organically produced crops to preserve the world we live in. We grew up knowing maize as the main crop, however, our pursuit to get even more nutritional value from food compelled us to dig deep. The prospects got even more exciting as we discovered crops like chia. Chia seeds are a source of good nutrients with countless benefits.
Nutri Superfoods specializes in organic chia seeds. Our current focus is on becoming women leaders in the production, processing and retailing of organic chia seeds locally and internationally. We see Nutri Superfoods growing beyond our imagination!
