What does your company do?

We sell and supply premium infused extra virgin olive oil and other food condiments (hummus, chilli relish, gourmet olives and salad dressing). We are a green company, so we use organic produce without preservatives and get all our ingredients from female suppliers, from packaging to printing it’s all done by fellow female entrepreneurs

What is your biggest success?

Our biggest success has been being a lifestyle partner for one of SA’s leading banks in their female awards. Other successes include graduating from prestigious incubators that have allowed us to grow our business in heaps and bounds realizing its strengths and getting investor ready to pitch which will help expand the business

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Keeping the consistency, the majority of the business falls on me, and so being consistent with orders and back user suppliers has been a challenge especially when the demand surpasses the supply, it makes it difficult to expand because of limited resources in the form of assistance and finances
