Mpilo-ende Fortified Foods is a Level 1 BBBEE
contributor in terms of the BBBEE Scorecards.
We are a 100% black youth and women owned professionally managed food manufacturing company, that has identified food fortification as a niche in the food manufacturing sector.
This niche is recognised for its role in combating malnutrition, hunger and curbing poverty for Food Security
(especially in the continent of AFRICA where more than
go to bed hungry each day), whilst also promoting nutrition and health in general food consumption.
The company manufactures grain processed food products and supplements for regional markets (AFRICA) distribution, as well as other strategic global markets.
Our fortified food products are used by various governments, food and humanitarian aid organisations, blue chip retail and wholesale groups, as well as for potential contract manufacturing
for market specific export food products (ready to eat meals
) to war torn and much impoverished African states.
Mpilo-ende is the founding member of the Africa Food Manufacturers &
Processors Association, whilst also an active member of the United Nations
Systems Standing Committee on Nutrition, and an associate member of the
National Food Alliance (SA Chapter) which is the initiative of the South
African Health Department and GAIN.
Given the strengths and opportunities in the agro-processing industry, we have developed a vision 2020 with an appropriate strategy and implementable action plan, so as to :-
- enhance farmer income,
- generate employment opportunities,
- provide choice to consumers at affordable price, whilst contributing to overall national growth by increasing:
- the level of food processing from 6% to 20%,
- value addition from 20% to 35%,
- and share in global food trade from 1.5% to 3%
Vision 2020 aims to enhance better choice through dynamism, competitiveness, and ensuring safety and quality of food by introducing a transparent and scientific system of standards in the country.
