SCIENCE IN THE SERVICE OF LIFE
At PVM we are driven by our passion for science – the search for an objective truth, empirical certainty and honesty. We also know that wise nutrition contributes directly to people’s better health, well-being and performance.
At PVM we are free to pursue the kind of essential, in-depth research and development to create superior nutrition through applied science to enable people from all walks of life to live their lives to the full, not just professional athletes who set themselves record breaking goals, but children, teenagers, adults, the elderly, and those who simply want to break their personal best in whatever sport they follow.
We therefore acknowledge our moral and ethical obligation to behave with integrity in everything we do.
Wholesome balanced nutrition is a precondition for all metabolic processes in the human body. Nutrition encompasses life – giving energy enabling people to actualise and fulfil their potential as human beings, resulting in a satisfying and meaningful existence. We regard nutritional supplements as complementary to a lifestyle including balanced eating habits on a daily basis.
THE ORIGIN OF PVM
PVM stands for Proteins, Vitamins & Minerals. The company was established in the late 1960’s as a result of intensive scientific research undertaken by the National Institute of Food Research of the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research).
As a result, PVM Nutritional Sciences became one of the first companies to manufacture clinical nutritional products to combat severe malnutrition and produced the World’s Original Energy Bar®, based on an earlier product devised to provide essential energy and nutrition for military personnel in combat.
PVM produces quality nutritional products and provides nutritional services to:
PVM has also developed numerous products for other companies, one of which is well known world wide. These products range from nutritional bars to supplements in powder form.
