About Us

Why mbewu?

The current food system is broken - it gives priority to large commercial farmers, leaving small scale farmers out in the cold. 

Our vision is simple: Restore the dignity of small scale farmers & poor rural communities as key players in the food production value chain. Why? 

  • To protect livelihoods by ensuring fair prices & reasonable profits for small scale farmers
  • Create a collaborative network of small scale farmers across SA for better efficiencies in the value chain
  • Build local food economies to promote sustainability & employment opportunities
  • Increase food security & reduce the direct impact of hunger at household level
  • Improve access to quality fresh produce in poorer households
