“Wow! So super impressed with my first order. Umatie, you ladies are amazing! Ordered meals for my 14 month old and he absolutely loves them! I am very particular about what I feed him but your meals tick all the boxes! Thank you!”

Salt and Sugar
We do not add any salt or sugar to our baby meals. Our meals are naturally sweet from the selection of ingredients we use. We do add a little pink salt and brown sugar to our kiddie and grown-up meals to offer a well-rounded, scrumptious meal.
The meals in our Petit Purees and Dinky Dinners are free from allergens. Cow’s Milk and Wheat (Gluten) are the only allergens we work with in our factory. We manage them through a strict allergen management programme. The allergens are clearly listed under “More Info” when selecting the meals in each category.
Fruit and Vegetables
We source our fresh produce from farmers who adhere to integrated farming or Global G.A.P. Our fresh produce is delivered to us on a daily basis to ensure absolute freshness and to meet the consistent quality standards that we require. We are generally unable to only use organic products. This is due to the amount of fresh produce we use but also that it’s not available throughout the year.
The meats we use are from free-roaming animals not treated with any routine anti-biotics. Our chicken is free range and the chickens are free to roam, raised stress free and are free from growth promoters. Our lamb is from a family-run business with over 20 years’ experience. They only source quality lambs from local farmers and they can trace the lamb back to the farmer. The finest cuts of lamb are used and hand trimmed to ensure consistent quality in our dishes. The beef we use is from a farm that uses natural farming methods, which ensure full-flavoured, lean beef of the highest quality. We only use deboned forequarter for our 90.10 lean mince to ensure consistent quality in our dishes. Our pork is from an accredited HACCP and export facility. Food safety with technical excellence and quality are their priorities. With these commitments we can ensure consistent quality in our dishes.
Additives and Preservatives
Our meals are free from all the nasties like GMO, MSG, colourants and hydrogenated fats. We use fresh ingredients and make everything from scratch, including our salt-free chicken stock. Whenever we buy products already packaged or tinned, it will have a clean label. Our dried spices are free from additives. We only use organic dried fruit, free from sulphur dioxide. We do not add any preservatives or flavourings to our foodies and we freeze it to naturally preserve it.
As an added safety measure, all orders for delivery will be packed in an Umatie insulated box with ice packs. They keep our foodies ice cold and safe on route. Orders for collection will not not be packed in a box but please feel free to arrange this with us if you want a box.
We’ve sourced our BPA-free, food safe packaging from a local company who complies to high standards, with the certification we require to ensure we offer our customers a quality product that keeps our foodies safe in the freezer for 5 months.
Our tubs are BPA-free, 100% food safe (with no nasties!), heat resistant in the microwave and dishwasher safe. Safely reuse them over and over again. Once done, they’re 100% recyclable (PP #5). Donate them to schools to support your community!
We are two sisters from Cape Town with a passion for good food. We started cooking our tasty meals from a small cottage in 2012 and are now based in a small factory in Stellenbosch. We still do everything how you would at home with no shortcuts - especially not the ingredients. In fact, we have perfected our meals to offer your baby or kiddie the best there is in terms of nutrition, texture and variety. We believe that weaning should be hassle-free and that your littlies should grow to love food right from the start.
We also cater for the rest of the family with our splendid selection of grown-up meals to stock your freezer for days when you need convenience! Our Lovely Local Products will add some style to your weaning and snack time fun. At Umatie we really do love everything and anything foodie related!
