1K1V backs Lesotho health-food company

1K1V has invested in The Rosehip Company, a health-food company based in Lesotho, to support its international expansion and metamorphosis from a wholesale commodity supplier to a producer of consumer-packaged goods.

The company is situated in Mohale’s Hoek, Lesotho. It was established in 2008 when its current shareholders, Herman and Catherine Nieuwoudt identified substantial market demand for Rosa Canina, which grows in Lesotho.

Today, The Rosehip Company is one of the largest producers of rosehip products in Africa.
