Margot is now concentrating her efforts on growing Isabelo to increase her reach across more schools. In 2020 Isabelo hope to: 

  • provide 40 600 warm lunches.
  • provide 296 380 healthy breakfasts.
  • feed 336 980 nutritious meals to the children in the Franschhoek Valley.
  • spend an average of R80 000 (€ 5 000) per month on meals.

Valrhona and Wild Peacock have developed a new custom couverture exclusive to the South African market, in partnership with Isabelo Charity. 

For every kilogram of Isabelo 64% Prue Togo chocolate purchased, €2 will go to the Isabelo Charity. This is enough to feed two children two meals in a day.
