Mariette van den Heever is the founder and owner of SUPERSPROUT. As an artist and researcher in the health and wellness field she stumbled on the concept of micro-greens. She was stunned to discover the immense health benefits and the versatility and uses of the product. Being a bit of a health freak herself, she anticipated the possibilities for developing the product. In 2013 she started experimenting with growing methods and different varieties and eventually came up with the current package, which yields very satisfactory results and is still cost-effective. She experimented with various other products, but to date the micro-green kits and sprouting kits are still in huge demand.When Mariette became aware of the degree of genetic manipulation to which present day foods are subject, she became fanatic abou theirloom plants and especially vegetables. She has gone to great lengths to acquire a huge repertoire of seeds which she grows and sells in slabs, which has proved to be a very effective way of nurturing growth from seed into plants which are ready for transplant. SUPERSPROUT products are sold at neighbourhood food markets e.g. he Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, at several Christmas markets and lifestyle markets such as Kamers and the Stellenbosch Cheese and Wine Festival and are also ordered by companies such as Wellness.Warehouse.
Recently Mariette has teamed up with Wim Koppenol, who shares her passion for growing things and together they have developed several new initiatives. His enthusiasm, special talents and propensity for business is taking SUPERSPROUT to a new level.
