Alongside Knorr, we believe that wholesome, nutritious food should be accessible to all. That’s why we’re joining Knorr on a journey to help fix South Africa’s broken food system and change the Plate of the Nation.

Alongside Knorr, we believe that wholesome, nutritious food should be accessible to all. That’s why we’re joining Knorr on a journey to help fix South Africa’s broken food system and change the Plate of the Nation.

Despite living in a country fortunate enough to be filled with a variety of nutritious crops, our population consumes a dangerously limited diet. This lack of dietary diversity has resulted in South Africa being deemed the unhealthiest country in the world according to the Indigo Wellness Index. 

So, what exactly is wrong with South Africa’s plate?

According to Knorr’s Plate of The Nation report, compiled by Nielsen, the current South African plate is composed of a disproportionately large amount of meat and starch, with very few vegetables. Our current plate consists of 41% starch and 26% meat, with only 13% vegetables, with the rest composed of fats and oils, dairy and legumes. 

The report also showed that although 82% of South Africans believe it is now easier to find healthy food than it was five years ago, only 52% think healthy food is affordable.

Through our Food Matters partnership with Knorr, we hope to make healthy eating more accessible by providing simple practical changes to help South Africans create healthier plates. 

Through the show, we hope to encourage more South Africans to eat better by championing dietary diversity, more plant-based eating, and sustainable sourcing of healthy ingredients.
