The Standard Bank KZN Top Business Awards present a good opportunity for companies to share their stories and showcase the calibre of the work you’re undertaking. The emphasis is on what makes each business standout in the category selected.
IG’s CEO, Nomfundo Mcoyi explains: “Given that next week marks the beginning of Women’s Month, receiving this award couldn’t have come at a better moment for me. It means a lot and I feel so humbled by this prestigious accolade where our efforts have been recognised as being the top in our industry. I know that achieving this success would not have been possible without the dedication and cooperation of all Icebolethu staff and it is their continuous zeal and passion that inspires us all and helps move Icebolethu forward. As an organization we are always looking for ways to improve our performance as far as operational efficiency is concerned.”
Icebolethu Group is South Africa’s second largest Funeral Assurance Group and has positioned itself as a leading provider of dignified burial solutions. The company has a 13-year history in the funeral industry and has a goal of becoming the leading funeral parlour group in South Africa and the SADC region.

The services of the 10 subsidiaries divisions under IG are centred around the company motto of being dedicated to the care of those it serves.
Mcoyi added: “What is also significant about this award is that it is not a personal award for me but it recognises THE Icebolethu Brand, which means it is for our clients and the community of KwaZulu Natal which has supported us for the past 12 years. Icebolethu is now an international brand with a presence in the UK and SADC countries, but it will always remain KZN authentic and we are A proudly KZN brand. As we are rolling out our plans to increase our presence across South Africa and the world, we are carried by the people of KZN and we are grateful.
