About us

Let Us Tell You Our Story

Numesa Pty Ltd

Bronwen del Paggio – entrepreneur since 2006

Numesa is an artisanal business based in Gerardsville, Gauteng. Numesa was started in 2015, when kefir (an amazing living fermented functional food) helped my children with stomach related issues. These issues were caused by today’s nutrition-less and gut damaging foods. It is unbelievably common in all our lives.

The benefits were too amazing not to share. The more I’ve learned about the importance of our gut microbiome, the more passionate I became.

My daughter, Calibra Davidson, she was so inspired to join forces with me in the early days. Kefir relieved the pain she experienced when she suffered with her tummy issues. During her matric year she would often be found harvesting milk kefir before school.

Our production team started with our beautiful Happy in 2016, she is now the Head of Production.

Our company was registered in 2017. Calibra left the business to gain working experience at a big corporate.

Since 2017, the company has grown from the 3 of us to a team of 7. We started with our VW Polo and a Tazz as delivery vehicles to a little refrigerated Toyota Dyna known as Lola the little Lorry.

We are fully compliant with all required legislation and SARS requirements. (VAT, UIF, CIPC, Food Safety Program, Food Acceptability certification).

What we do

Gut health and probiotics.
Why is it so important?

We don’t have a health crisis; we have a food crisis.

We are eating foods that damage our gut and poison the microbes. If the food we eat does not kill the beneficial bacteria, then we starve them to death by not eating enough prebiotics.

Or we wipe them out with antibiotics, over-use antibacterial soap, hand sanitizers and other environmental toxins. We are literally waging chemical warfare on ourselves.

This results in - depression, anxiety, food intolerances, inflammation in the gut, joints and body, sleep disorders, constipation and unlimited allergies. The list just goes on.IBS is the manifestation of an imbalance of microbes in the gut microbiome.

Could your gut’s ecosystem out of balance?

When your gut is off balance, it doesn’t work properly, which manifests into the symptoms listed above.

In today’s current world crisis, you cannot afford to have a compromised immune system.

Did you know that your moods, brain functionality and mental well being is influence by our gut microbes who manufacture most of our FEEL- GOOD neurotransmitter serotonin? Seeding and feeding the microbiome will result in healthier and happier people.

On the other side, many diseases, particularly stomach and immune dis-eases can be traced back to not enough good bugs being hosted in your gut. Microbes are also often called bugs.

Kefir is made up of billions of good bioactive compounds, comprising of mainly lactobacillus species. Probiotic diversity is key when it comes to gut health. You want as many different types of good bacteria as possible, there must be enough of them and you want them to be absorbed easily by the gut.


Kefir is a fermented beverage, which is an ancient functional food. Kefir is a mesophilic symbiotic culture (Scobie), a symbiotic culture of lactic acid bacteria and yeasts embedded in a matrix of proteins, lipids, and polysaccharides (thank you Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kefir) working together to benefit the host (our gut, mouth, skin).

Kefir contains large varieties of beneficial microbes. Milk kefir has been known to have around 30 different types of bacteria and water kefir 12.

Kefir is a source of nutrients (Proteins, calcium, phosphorus, B12, Vit K, magnesium, Vit D.

There is information that says that the word ‘kefir’ comes from a Turkish word meaning ‘good feeling’.
