Lara Mare Van Niekerk: The healthy nutrition champion

Updated: Apr 23, 2019

Lara Mare Van Niekerk@lara_marevanniekerk is a business woman and mom with a passion for convenient, healthy eating. It is this passion that inspired her to start Rush Natural Nutrition @rush_natural_nutrition @RushBarstogether with her partner Gavin Memper, a master chef with a passion for sports and performance nutrition.

In a society where it’s becoming increasingly difficult to take time out and prepare food the way it should be – naturally – their food solutions offer just that. Rush bars are a range of whole food solutions, created to deliver delicious and pure fuel for active and growing bodies.

We are inspired by Lara’s story because she had the courage and drive to combine her love for business with her desire to change eating habits. She is committed to making everyday life a healthier affair - one where we use less additives, preservatives and medications! Lara started Rush whilst still pursuing a full-time corporate job (which she has since quit) and the company has been growing steadily over the last three years since she took the leap of faith.

Lara can absolutely not start the day without a cup of tea and a rusk and loves laughing at her own jokes (the cornier the better!).
