Dr Mavhungu Tracy Nelwamondo is inspired by the potential role of food in medicine. As a qualified medical doctor, she says she is honoured to be able to combine this practice with her background in African indigenous healthcare, the culmination of which was her founding Modern Traditions and Malie’s Ice Cream.
Malie’s Ice Cream, named after her son Malibongwe, is an ice cream made from indigenous marula nuts. It includes other healthy ingredients, and has a reduced sugar content.
Modern Traditions provides healthy nutritious staples such as nut butters, baobab powder and indigenous wholegrains.
Nelwamondo’s product range is available at some independent retailers and Pick n Pay stores.
Her vision is a healthy South Africa; she is driven to excel by a desire to bring healing to people, using the resources already available on the continent.
