About Nuveg Pre-cooked Vegetable Portions

All good food starts in the home kitchen – Nuveg did too.

Nuveg was established in 2012 by husband and wife team, Ivan and Antoinette Smook in their kitchen at home. They have a passion for food and produce a quality pre-cooked product based on traditional South African recipes that tastes as if Mom made it especially for you – every time. To preserve these wholesome dishes which are to be enjoyed quick and fresh, given the fast pace of modern life, the Smooks found innovative ways to do just that.

FROZEN FROM FRESH Nuveg are the first and only producer of a range of pre-cooked, frozen freezer-friendly, individually wrapped portions of vegetables that gives the consumer the complete freedom of choice and that is ready to eat in minutes. Preparing Nuveg meals are simple and easy; simply pop the desired portions into a microwave oven, follow the heating instructions and serve. Even older children that can operate a microwave oven can prepare Nuveg meals trouble free.

Each Nuveg box contains individually microwavable wrapped pre-cooked portions of 60g to 175g,depending on the product. The range provides for an optimal choice of vegetables per meal with no wastage. You only use what you need and the rest stay protected in the freezer. Nuveg packaging prevents freezer burn.

Nuveg – A brand new innovative concept for the ready to eat food sector.

    Ek dreig al solank om vir jou te mail en uiteindelik doen ek vandag.

    Ek koop die afgelope jaar baie van jou groente vir Ilse (sy is nou eerstejaar op Sbos) en ook sommer vir my en Johann aangesien ons 2tjies nou alleen by die huis is en die vars groente baie keer nie hou nie. Jou produkte is waarlik vir ons soooo lekker en dit is weekliks op my inkopielys.

    Well done en baie sterkte met jou besigheid. Ek gaan defnitief een van jou getroue kliënte bly.

    Beste wense vir ‘n fantastiese 2015 vir jou en jou gesin en ook vir jou besigheid.

    “I really love your products! Best tasting veggies I ever had.. Tastes just like Grandma’s 🙂 I just need to know the nutritional value of each portion. I am on a calorie restricted diet so its very hard to calculate my daily food intake as I eat your veggies daily.”

    “We have a Motor home and I find your product perfect for our small fridge freezer, it saves me taking bulky veggies.I put your veggies in small places in my freezer. I have spoken to a few of my fellow Moto homers but they do not know of your product. Why do you not advertise in our camping magazine I am sure the product will be greatly accepted? – Marianne”

    “Thank you so much for dropping off the box of goodies yesterday.I got a very enthusiastic SMS from Flip telling me how much he enjoyed meeting you. I must tell you too that we had the potatoes and carrots this weekend and they were very yummy.

I am a very big fan and will certainly be spreading the word in this part of the country.

    AT LAST!!!!!

    I have found food!

    I was at Checkers this afternoon and came across this wonderful Nuveg Variety Pack.

    Being a vegetarian (I do eat fish from to time for the protein) but no meats, nor chicken.
    Living alone, I buy food (in far too larger quantities, because we are definitely neglected in sizes
    and choices) and half goes down the drain.

    And am very impressed at your packing too, so can’t wait to eat your goodies.

    I would just like to tell you that your product is a heaven sent.

    I hate peeling veggies and everything that goes with it – the dirty dishes included. Last night we had the Potato Bake as a side dish with
    grilled fish and a salad – DELICIOUS!!!

    You have really made my life soooo much easier. Never ever will I buy any other product ever again.

  • Testimonials

    I recently came across your product in Checkers North Johannesburg. What a godsend!
    I am a pensioner and live alone, your veg packs are ideal and delicious and tasty.
    Love the potato cheesebake, roast vegs, savoury rice and butternut.
    Looked for more today and found mash potato.
    I haven’t seen your product in pick n pay stores.
    Please continue with this great product.

    I am promoting it to my friends and family.
