Continuing to interview and write about Social Change Entrepreneurs who are making a difference. Let me tell you about South African Food Company in the United Kingdom.

Jana and I did a Hangout on Friday last week and whatever happened, it didn’t record. I decided to write about them instead. Hopefully when they aren’t so busy we can do another hangout.

Jana & Schalk.. started the South African Food Co.in 2010. They basically missed the food they were used to eating in South Africa (as they live in the UK now)- so they started to make the meat dishes they missed like Bobotie or Tamatiebredie. Like any other Food Entrepreneur they tested their recipes, researched how to get ingredients and formulated their options with other professionals.

Bobotie (pron.: /bɒˈboʊti/), also spelt bobotjie, is a South African dish consisting of spiced minced meat baked with an egg-based topping.[1] Bobotok was an Indonesian dish consisting of meat with a custard topping that was cooked in a pan of water until the egg mixture set. Sourced from Wiki


Tamatiebredie is a Tomato Stew and Mutton Stew recipe is a firm South African favorite and is definitely in the mainstream of South African cuisine.

They now offer Traditional, Home-Inspired meals made from South African Recipes and delivered to you. Even next day delivery.

They have created a partnership with Jam International. For every main meal you buy from us you also buy a meal for a child in Africa. To find out more information about Jam International

To order or to speak with Jana their information is on their website.
