The Harvest Table
What does your company do?
We are a distributor of Health Supplements across South Africa. Our business creates products that are easy for people to incorporate into their day and give people important nutrition that shifts their health.
What is your biggest success?
Growing a brand that speaks to my life story as well as creating product that is positively impacting people's lives. We receive feedback daily on how people's lives have changed because they have added one of our products into their daily routine. I am incredibly proud of the brand we have created and the story that it tells. I am incredibly proud that our brand is proudly South African and is creating employment in our nation. It is also important to us to use earth conscious packaging and consider the environment in all decisions that we make.
What has been your biggest hurdle?
Growing a business with little available support from banks or other entities requires guts and determination. I have poured myself into this business without being able to draw a salary for many years as we have grown and needed to invest funds back into our business, our people and buying stock. Small businesses struggle to get trade terms from suppliers or loans from banks to assist with cash flow and so it can be a difficult journey.
