Since September 2015 she embarked on her own venture under the business name PandoPro (Pty) Ltd, primarily dealing in importing a unique specialised ingredient for the carbonated soft drink market. Vanessa’s topic for the morning was; What has kept us sick, fat and tired for years? She started off by explaining how important our gut is and how the produce we consume, especially gluten, damages our gut and in turn causes weight gain, tiredness and many of the illnesses such as Arthritis, Alzheimer’s and Thyroid disease. Vanessa explained how processed foods damages our body and what natural foods we must consume on a daily basis.
After Vanessa’s talk networkers were given the opportunity to present themselves and their business in a 30-second ‘elevator pitch ’, followed by some lucky draws, networking, sharing of business cards and enjoying appetizers.
