Get GOing with Datsun

Tummies Full of Love set to grow, thanks to business boost from Datsun

702 and the Datsun GO+ Panel Van are giving five small businesses in Gauteng a helping hand. Entrants to the "Get GOing with Datsun" competition stand a chance of winning a "business boost". In addition, one lucky finalist will walk away with a brand new Datsun GO+ Panel Van!

Two years ago Marita Bezuidenhout decided to follow her passion and after the birth of her third baby, started producing healthy baby food targetting busy mothers who don't always have time to do it themselves. She called it Tummies Full of Love.

Being a mother you realise the impact healthy foodis very important in a developing baby and child. I always made my children's food, since the they started their first solid food. With my second child I realised that moms are just too busy to make their own home made baby food, and that there is really a big need for healthy baby food that is great tasting.

Her business boost from Datsun was in response to her biggest challange - the sourcing of fresh fruits and vegetables. We filled the Datsun GO+ Panel Van with sweet potatoes, butternut, apples, pears, carrots AND then a number of other items listed by Marita as being much needed.

And the list MUST be growing - the last 4 months has seen her business grow from 400 baby food tubs a month to 4000 tubs a month!

I have had so many enquiries about mommies in other towns all over SA that wants to start selling it to their friends and family... so although I am not 100% sure about the future, I would love to start a Tummies full of Love Franchise. That way I can help other moms create an income, and we can all together make a difference in our children's lifestyles.

Asked what difference a GO+ Panel Van could make to the running of her business, Marita, who currently has a friend helping with deliveries, expressed her excitement at having her own branded vehicle.

This will give my business a boost, and I will be able to help more mommies to relax over weekends, while I make their babies yummy healthy food.
