This Saturday, we will be celebrating 2nd annual international World Eat for Good Day. This year, global food
brand Knorr, founder of World Eat for Good Day, will be reimagining the world’s most loved
dish ‘pizza’ making it planet friendlier with a simple swap that is good for people and planet.
The global food brand is using plant-based ingredients from its Future50 list of foods to
encourage the South African population to adapt to better eating habits.
Knorr developed the planet-friendlier pizza to show the world how easy it is to make
delicious swaps in everyday meals that can decrease our environmental impact while
increasing nutritional value. The launch of the planet friendlier pizza is part of Knorr’s
commitment to getting food that is good for people and the planet on seven billion plates
Currently, our food system is a key contributor to climate change, species loss, drought and
soil damage. We need to prioritise transformation of our food system; from the way we farm and
fish to what we choose to eat. Food is also the strongest lever to maximise human and
planetary health on Earth. 75% of the global food supply comes from just 12 plants and 5 animal
species. Farming of this limited range of crops can be harmful to our fragile natural eco-system.
Eating a wider variety of foods helps safeguard the future of food while providing more
“On World Eat for Good Day, we want to help South Africans understand the impact ourfood system has on our plates and planet. It’s not an easy task, and if we are to deliver
nutritious food to all, everyone needs to play a part in making the food system more
sustainable.” Vuyo Henda Foods Marketing Director, Southern Africa
For a limited time only, 18th and 19th February 2022, Knorr will be giving everyone a chance
to get their ready-to-eat slice of this planet friendlier pizza from Pasha’s or with Uber Eats in
the Durban region to encourage more and more South Africans to not only try this
deliciously nutritious pizza and adapt to better eating habits.
“I’m an optimist at heart. I truly believe that we can, we should and will make this world a
better place. In the same breath I also don’t believe in trying to do EVERYTHING, or NOTHING
but rather doing SOMETHING. This is why I think that what Knorr and World Eat For Good
say is such a small change that can make such a massive impact. How? Well, it’s as easy as
making a few food choices that includes a few swaps for some delicious vegetables! I’m
going on this journey and I think you should too.” Adds J’something, award-winning artist,
cook, guitarist and vocalist.
As part of the World Eat for Good Day, planet friendlier pizza launch, Knorr has partnered
with South African celebrities and chefs, J’Something, Mpoomy Ledwaba, Chef Daniel
Mbombi, Chef Lentswe Bhengu, Chef Katlego Mlambo, Chef Luyanda Mafanya and Eativists
to show South Africa how easy it is to prepare this nutritious planet friendlier pizza in the
comforts of their homes.
