Kauai expands into new healthy frozen range with Pick n Pay

Kauai, South Africa’s leader in healthy food, has extended its brand into retail with the launch of an innovative frozen product range in partnership with Pick n Pay. The partnership marries Kauai’s 23 years of experience as the leader in healthy food, with Pick n Pay’s heritage as a trusted retailer, to make healthy eating more accessible to a broader range of customers.

The Pick n Pay powered by Kauai frozen product range was developed to meet the growing demand from customers seeking healthier ready-to-eat meals that they can conveniently enjoy at home.

The new range includes a variety of healthy frozen smoothies, already available in-store, with frozen meals and side dishes available from January 2020. The range will include some of Kauai’s top-selling meals and smoothies, like the Strawberry Stinger smoothie and Butta Chicken Bowl.

Pick n Pay, which recently relaunched its Livewell range to include easy-to-read labels for smarter, healthier food choices, says that it wants to make healthier eating easier, more accessible and more desirable. The Pick n Pay powered by Kauai range is the latest addition to the Livewell range consisting of more than 600 products. “Healthier food shouldn’t be seen as boring or less tasty. The new range will offer our customers a delicious, yet quick and easy healthy meal option,” says Nicki Russell, head of innovation and trends at Pick n Pay.

The restaurant-quality meals and smoothies can simply be taken out of the freezer and cooked or prepared from frozen in the quantities customers choose, so there is no wastage. Like the menu in Kauai stores, the ready-to-eat frozen range avoids additives, preservatives, artificial colourants and flavourants. The Pick n Pay powered by Kauai range includes:


  • Tropical Greens – Tropical fruits with a punch of ginger and nutrient-dense greens
  • Plant Power – Sunny pineapple paired with plant-based protein powder, packs a vegan nutrient punch
  • See Monster – An orange fruit and veg smoothie great for supporting the immune system
  • Very Berry – Bursting with flavour and antioxidants-rich berry fruit
  • Strawberry Stinger – Kauai’s all-time fan fave, a healthier take on a strawberry shake, with strawberries and banana
  • All the Greens – A health-seeker's go-to green smoothie, packed with nutrient-dense greens, hemp and chia seeds   

Frozen meals

  • Hearty Veggie Bowl – A warm and comforting veggie stew with quinoa, lentils and basil pesto
  • Mexi Veggie Bowl – Smoky spicy beans, flavoured rice and butternut side
  • Thai Veg Curry Bowl – Authentic Thai flavour with a rainbow of vegetables
  • Garden Cottage Pie – Lentil stew topped with orange root vegetable mash

  • Butta Chicken Bowl – A veggie-packed take on a classic Indian dish with brown rice, millet, buckwheat and quinoa
  • Low Carb Butta Chicken Bowl – A lower-carb version of a classic Indian dish with turmeric, roasted cauliflower, ginger and garlic

Frozen sides

  • Spiced Butternut – A hint of cayenne pepper & coriander complement the sweetness of our slow-roasted butternut
  • Root Vegetable Mash – Kauai’s trio of root vegetables are slow-roasted for depth of flavour, then blended to a fluffy texture
  • Ancient Grain Mix – Kauai’s mix of whole grains is a blend of interesting textures, an alternative base for grain bowls and additions to curries.

Two more proudly South African chip flavours hit the shelves

As part of the nationwide campaign “What’s your Mmmzansi Flavour”, Simba has launched two more locally inspired flavours: Chakalaka and Shisanyama.

The campaign saw Simba, with Anele Mdoda, one of SA’s most loved radio personalities, calling for people far and wide to share their own Mmmzansi flavour, reflecting all that our nation loves to eat. South Africans jumped at the opportunity, suggesting a variety of delectable homegrown flavours in celebration of both Simba and our nation’s rich, local heritage. 

The two new flavours, Chakalaka and Shisanyama, follow hot on the heels of the recently launched Chilli Biltong flavour and were chosen because they are what South Africans most love to eat. The combinations of meat and spice repeatedly came up as favourites, and the pairings were created using dishes that have been on local menus for generations.  

“Chakalaka and Shisanyama are such iconic South African foods, enjoyed by millions in their homes each day. Our intention is to capture these classic favourites into a bag of Simba chips and take people on a locally inspired flavour journey,” says Agnes Kitololo, the marketing director at PepsiCo. 

So, go into a store and grab your packet of Simba’s new Mmmzansi flavoured Chakalaka and Shisanyama chips.
