Our director

Leigh-Ann Hasselbach completed her BSc Hon (Biochemistry) at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2005. She started working in the Agricultural Sector trading in agricultural commodity chemicals in 2006. She has also completed a PMD through GIBS Institute and the Foundations in Nutrigenomics through Manuka Science.

She is affiliated with The South African Animal Science (SASAS) and The South African Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SASBMB), and is registered with The South African Council for Natural Scientific Professions (SACNASP).

She expanded her knowledge in agriculture and became more involved in the complete food solution. In 2015, the business grew into the areas of functional medicine and nutrigenomics. This piece of the puzzle meant further development of the business into areas of genomics and the science of utilising biochemistry in all aspects of food, nutrition, and pharmacogenomics. Her passion evolved to include all spheres of biochemistry in people, plants and animals, ensuring that maximum food quality for consumers is achieved.
