Our History

National Pride was founded in 2001, as a company that produced and distributed disposable diapers.

Exponential growth was experienced, resulting in the opportunity to partner with Lodestone Brands in 2011, which took the business to the next level, offering a full range of branded disposable diapers, adult incontinence diapers, wet wipes, and sanitary pads.

In 2016, we acquired Cuddlers®, the first and oldest South African diaper brand.

In 2020 Management, together with WeighPoint Capital, acquired the business from Lodestone Brands through an MBO, with funding from the IDC under their Black Industrialist Scheme.

With a new-generation industrial plant in Johannesburg, offering world-class manufacturing capabilities, and a Quality Management System that is ISO 2001:2015 CertifiedNational Pride continues to grow, innovate, and offer our clients competitively-priced products that offer peace of mind, protection, and reliability.
