THIS IS US

This is us

We are two sisters 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. Feel free to pop in and meet us... we are there every day! 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 easy, your littlies should grow to love food right from the start. We also cater for the rest of the family with our convenient mix-and-match meals.

Our ingredients

What's in it for you

What's in it for you

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.

Meat
All the meat 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.

Allergens
We have meals that contain allergens (dairy, wheat/gluten and egg). All allergens are listed under the “more info” section when selecting the meals.

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 be organic or have a clean label. Our dried spices are free from additives and non-irradiated. 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.

Heating our meals

Heating our meals

heat our meals
from frozen

It’s best to heat our meals from frozen to ensure an ideal consistency. Remove the outer sleeve, break the tamperproof seal and remove the lid before heating. Defrost it a little in the microwave, then heat on full, stirring inbetween.

our foodsafe
packaging promise

We’ve sourced our BPA-free, foodsafe packaging from a local company who complies to high standards, with the certification we require to ensure we offer our customers a quality product to keep our foodies safe in the freezer.

recycle-reuse
our packaging

Our packaging is a 100% recyclable polypropylene container. It is ideal to heat and keep our foodies safe when you’re out and about, but you can also safely re-use the bowls over and over. Once done, please recycle!(PP #5)
