Nhlayisa Nutrition Solutions
Game ranger, Alex van den Heever, who lives at Londolozi Game Reserve conceived “Nhlayisa” (Tsonga word for ‘care’). Alex has lived in the bushveld for 21 years, working everyday with men and women who often do not reach their full potential due to poor nutrition.
This motivated Alex and James Hendry to conduct a detailed nutritional investigation of the people living in rural Mpumalanga and Limpopo, bordering the Kruger National Park. The results revealed severe nutritional deficiencies among the residents.
“By visiting hundreds of homes, schools and clinics we recognised the enormous talent and untapped potential of the people and their children”, says Alex. He continues, “this became our reason for being.”
To date Nhlayisa has supplied nutritious foods for large retail outlets such as Pick ‘n Pay, Mopani Pharmacy, Spar, mines, timber mills, farmers, feeding schemes as well as informal white lable retail clients.
