Maggi Launch Supports South Africa’s Healthy Heritage Vegetable ‘Morogo’

Nestlé South Africa is launching a new line of Maggi noodles containing the green leafy vegetable ‘morogo’, which is being commercialised for the first time ever as a result of a three-year research collaboration with government agencies. Several types of vegetable rich in vitamins, minerals and protein – cleome, cow pea and amaranthus, all commonly referred to as morogo – were screened to assess their nutrient levels and suitability for cultivation and processing.

Amaranthus was eventually chosen for incorporation within a morogo ‘tastemaker’ (the flavouring sachet) included with the new line of Maggi 2-minute noodles. One pack of noodles equals one serving of morogo.

Nestlé’s ambition is to ensure that emerging farmers may eventually be able to augment their incomes by growing morogo commercially.
