About Us - The PURITY Story
The PURITY story began all the way back in 1953. Capetonian Don Thompson noticed how hard South African mothers had to work to provide delicious meals for their little ones. Don had a wide knowledge of the food canning industry and was aware of not only the convenience of sealed foods, but their nutritional value. He teamed up with his wife Ruth, a dietician, and his cousin Helen, a chemist, to develop a range of convenient sealed baby food that not only tasted great, but also locked in all the essential nutrients young bodies need to grow up healthy and happy.
Although times have changed since we made our first few jars, the PURITY you’ll find on the shelf today is still made with the same love, understanding and attention to detail. With every passing decade and every new generation, we keep growing our expertise. We’re always looking for new ways to make the journey through motherhood more rewarding, and we will continue to be a mother’s partner in motherhood by giving them all the care, quality and support they need to help their little one to reach their full potential.
