Kanyisa Nombembe

I have a National Diploma in Food Technology. After completing my diploma, I worked at Lancewood Holdings in George as a Laboratory Technician and was later promoted to be a Laboratory Manager, where I gained my dairy experience.

In 2011 I moved to Sovereign Foods in Uitenhage, in the position of QMS coordinator until 2013. In 2013 I moved to production as a Shift Team Leader.

I joined the Coega Dairy team in June 2017 as a Quality Assurance Manager, where my role is to implement and maintain Food Safety System Certification (FSSC).

I love challenges, am an easy person to work with - very straight forward - and I am always eager to learn new things. I am currently doing introduction to SAMTRAC courses.

Outside work I enjoy spending time with my family. I am blessed with a son (9 years), I enjoy gym and I am very passionate about helping less privileged people. At church I am a coordinator for RUCC Cares, where we feed homeless and less privileged people every Saturday in my area. We also assist school children with basic needs for education.
