Growing together: The story of our PERi-Farms

Changing lives one chilli at a time!


The African Bird’s Eye Chillies we serve up in our PERi-PERi bastings and sauces are unique to Nando’s, grown for us by small-scale farmers in Southern Africa.

We work with local farming organisations to educate and empower these farmers to run their businesses successfully. We always guarantee a fair price for their crops, which means the farmers and their families have better access to education, healthcare, water, energy and housing.

We now have over 1,400 farmers hand-picking over one billion chillies each year in Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa!
