Mohamed Kajee Managing Director, FoodBank South Africa

Mohamed (Mo) Kajee is the Managing Director of FoodBank South Africa. Kajee has over 30 years of experience in the private sector, working at executive levels for companies such as Irvin and Johnson, Premiere Fishing South Africa and BP.

Kajee was first introduced to FoodBank South Africa in mid-2011, when Old Mutual’s Ilima Trust generously sponsored him to work with the organization as a consultant. Kajee quickly developed a passion for food banking and the network, and was appointed Deputy Managing Director soon after. He later accepted an invitation from the Board of Directors to lead the organization.

“I was inspired by the great role that FBSA is playing in hunger alleviation and working closely with the government to address poverty alleviation. Food insecurity is a major obstacle in the social and economic development of South Africa’s society and young democracy. I hope to make a contribution by working together with the dedicated staff and volunteers of FoodBank South Africa and expanding the organization’s footprint beyond the borders of South Africa."
