A young Khayelitsha resident is doing his best to introduce 100% organic burgers in his neighbourhood.

Lindile Ndzaba,30, from B Section started the Khayelitsha Burger Project four months ago with the aim of introducing healthy eating habits to locals.

He currently works as an operations manager at Frankie Fenne Meat Merchants it was during this time that he learned the difference between regular meat and organic meat.

“The difference is that in the process of making organic meat, animals are not fed supplements, nor injected and are not fed grain. They are grown naturally and not given growth agents as a result the meat is healthier.

You have to consider that whatever we eat gets into our system so all those supplements and growth hormones are transferred to us,” he said. He hopes to get locals to learn about the food they ingest and make healthier choices. He runs his project on the weekends at the Blue Moon lounge where he sells the burgers to patrons and residents.

He is assisted by family and neighbours in the business and his burgers are available for as little as R35.

“It’s been great with people enjoying the burgers and we are quite confident that it will take off soon. My goal is to open my own diner in Khayelitsha where people can come in and enjoy 100% organic meat,” he said.

He said his path to health living started in 2015 when he began to eat clean and started to keep his body fit. He jogs regularly and he hopes that more people can join him in his lifestyle. “We need to really start considering our health and that is the message of this business,”. He said that despite the high cost of this meat he is confident on the success of his business.“To be honest, organic meat is quite expensive to source and even my supplier is selling to me at a very considerable price,” said Ndzabo.
