About this Speaker

I'm passionate about promoting Moringa, health & well-being, and positive change. Moringa Initiative is a proud, award winning, family-owned business. My family established Moringa Initiative in 2013. We grow, process and distribute organic Moringa oleifera across Zambia, South Africa and the global market.

We pride ourselves in the quality of our Moringa, being transparent in all farming practices. We strive to exceed industry standards of quality. Our Moringa is planted in the fertile soils of Zambia, free of pesticides, chemicals and non-organic fertilizers. The only things added are natural compost, sun, water and rain. We are currently in the process of becoming Certified Organic by Ecocert. We employ 150 farmers, of which 85% are women. All employees receive on-the-job training, free housing and health care. We are active members of the community and donate Moringa to foundations that are close to our hearts.

In 2018, myself and Lloyd Abernethy expanded my family business and opened up our own branch in Durban, South Africa. We distribute our bulk Moringa to food manufacturers across South Africa and to the global market. We supply our retail products to the FMCG market. We are currently listed with Spar, Pick 'n' Pay and OK Foods. Marketing, Events & People are my specialty.
