The client is an online food service that delivers recipes and raw ingredients (a meal kit/dinner box) to your home/place of work. It provides you with the convenience of not having to shop and plan a menu for the week and have an endless variety to your meals. It’s easy to cook and courier-delivered to selected suburbs in greater Cape Town, Durban/Pietermaritzburg, Joburg, Pretoria and PE. They procure as much raw food as possible directly from the farms and other vendors who share their fanaticism for quality, hygiene and presentation, a sort of ‘Woolies-on-the-go’!

Many of their customers have reported back how prepping and cooking the evening meal has become such a pleasure and how much they enjoy sharing the experience with their partner or other family members/housemates.

They’re a small, tight knit team. Ten ladies who prep and pack the food in the warehouse, a full-time IT developer (who maintains/builds the website and other digital assets), a marketing, online and product development manager, an operations manager and an operations assistant. The team is located in Montague Gardens, Cape Town.

They’ve grown and matured over the years and are starting to streamline the business and fine tune roles. They’d like to add a chef to their team that can assist in creating new recipes across our various menu’s.
