Dumelang Ntate Thabang here ! I am the Kitchen Manager of NEKED FOOD. I grew up in in the nearby regions of Ficksburg in the Free State. My family has had a long history of traditional healing and through those connections I came to work for NEKED and NEKED FOOD. I feel fortunate to work for both companies. By working for NEKED FOOD I have learnt that the way you eat can also change the way you feel and grow as an individual.

Joy Nkopane


Hi! I am Joy Nkopane from Free State, Ficksburg. The restaurant manager of NEKED FOOD in Clarens.Our food is plant based food (100% vegan food). I was not raised vegan but I've learnt a lot ever since I joined the team at NEKED FOOD.I am from the farms and I love animals, if you have that pure love of animals you wouldn't want to hurt them ,and that's exactly why I love working with vegan food ,you do not get to hurt any animal nor kill them, just because we like the taste of their dear bodies. I no longer believe animals are here for us for food. VEGAN FOOD is soul food in its trust form.Soul food means to feed the soul, and to me your soul is your intent. If your intent is pure, you are pure.🌱🫶🌱

Zandile "ZaZa" Dlamini


Hi! I am Zaza Dhlamini from Qwaqwa. I am the assistant chef of NEKED FOOD. On my first day when I started working at NEKED FOOD my chef asked me if I like vegan food I replied..NO! I want meat! I never knew that there are so many people out there who can survive without eating meat, we always thought that meat is everyone's favourite dish. But then I was wrong all this time working at NEKED FOOD has taught me so much about the healthiness of vegan food. Ohh!! I love working with this plant-based food , it brings such beautiful smiles on people's faces and that's because we cooking them with the love in our hearts. Not hurting any of the living things. We are saving animals here!
