About us

We help offices, shared work-spaces, virtual meeting rooms, schools and universities elevate their wellness by delivering a wide range of healthy, delicious, on-the-go snacks.

Health Island was founded out of a passion for health and nutrition by Philip Rubin in July 2010. The company is based in Cape Town, South Africa and has a presence across the country from Makhanda in the South to Messina on the Northern border.


We started our journey by filling the gap in the market for healthy vending machines – first to market with this concept in South Africa in 2010. The demand soon grew to provide our amazing product range in more diverse ways.


Our mission is to deliver a range of affordable, nutrition-packed, flavourful snacks where you need it most - at work, at home, or at play, and to uplift the national nutrition footprint. Nutrition is but one vital part of our well being. The bottom line? "Be fit, eat right, think well". We need natural, nutrient-dense food, as close to the source as possible.


How we can help - show your staff you care:

1) Send a healthy, nutritious snackbox hamper to your remote-workers - to their door, anywhere in SA (Email us for a template for names and addresses, and you will email us a personal note to go in each box).

2) Order some healthy snackboxes to be waiting on the desk of staff when they return to office - saves delivery fees because all hampers to office address.

3) Order a large bulk box of snacks for the office every month or two - distribute to staff as you see fit - honesty bar, hand it out free, or appoint office-admin to sell the snacks. Great for boardroom meetings!

4) Arrange a healthy snack vending machine for the office - email us for details.

98% of our products are locally sourced. 100% are screened to have no MSG, no trans-fats and no bad stuff. They ALL taste, well, amazing! The range includes many raw snack mixes like Cashews and Almonds, Dates and Almonds, Cashews and Berries, roasted and savoury mixes, nutritious snack bars, biltong, rice crackers, hummus and lentil crisps. Many natural drinks as well.


Our product range addresses WELLNESS and NUTRITION - and is growing all the time. We just love sourcing and sampling new products (who wouldn’t!), and we spend considerable time doing the health checks on our products’ ingredients.


We are working hard for you continuously, scouring the country for new and better products, checking their sources, checking their contents and ensuring that they ARE actually good for you. With Health Island you don’t need to check what you are putting into your body – we have already done that for you. Good nutrition need not mean boring! We also look for great taste.
