Our mission

“Address socio economic
challenges by providing
nutritious sustainable
food to communities.”

Our aim is to provide nutritious and sustainable food security to vulnerable communities by sourcing, manufacturing, and distributing surplus and low-cost fresh produce to Accredited NPC and Associated Charitable Organisations. Through basic food provision, we aim to assist professional organisations and committed individuals to address socio-economic challenges facing these communities

Why we do this

extreme people 1

By using the most basic of ingredients we can and do make a difference in the most difficult of times, while using the most cost effective means possible. Supporting an NPC Charity Network that has a major footprint embedded in the Western Cape communities has proven us most effective in reaching the most impoverished, young and old.

Relieving the most primary human need for sustenance allows communities to concentrate on efforts to better their own lives.
