We are saddened by the sudden passing of Prof. David Sanders on Friday 30 August 2019 of a heart attack while on holiday in Wales, UK, at the age of 74. Prof. Sanders was well-known in the nutrition community in South Africa with his first engagement being his participation as a keynote speaker in a continuing education event organised at the University of the Western Cape in 1992. He served on the NSSA council from 1998–2000 and received the prestigious NSSA award for outstanding contribution to nutrition research in South Africa in 2002. Although he retired ten years ago, he continued to work as actively as before (if not more so) and many will remember his critical and passionate contributions to the 2018 Nutrition Congress where he was a keynote speaker on the conflict of interest debate. He was also the chairperson of the organising and scientific committee of the 2016 World Public Health Nutrition Association Congress held in Cape Town.
