We are Food is a family run business, based in Durban, South Africa. Started in 2013 out of demand for home cooked meals, We are Food makes up wholesome, tasty and affordable frozen dishes that can be enjoyed in your own home.
For anyone that knows the Weare family, our home and celebrations are laced with food and drink. Double length trestle tables overflowing with food to feed our hungry, 30 plus family at Christmas time, or canapés and creamy baked camembert’s at a birthday party. To us, food and entertaining have always been exciting, an excuse to try new recipes, and make our guests feel welcome, through their bellies!
We are passionate about food, cooking, friends and building a great business. You’ll find us rummaging through our dear Granny Mavis’ cook books, getting lost on Pinterest, or having a coffee and carrot cake at one of our many local spots.
At We are Food, the dishes we make are wholesome, tasty and affordable. It’s quite simple, we want to cook for you as you would cook for your own family in your own home… maybe a little better! This means buying ingredients we actually use in our own kitchen, and methods that have been tried and tested by us for many years. Hard work combined with talent and passion is our recipe for something tasty.
One of our goals at We are Food is to train and employ previously disadvantaged women. This is an issue that we are very passionate about, and have been working at through various avenues for years. This and our love for teaching and training, has motivated us to pursue a business that looks at uplifting the lives of South African women.
We believe in using humans for jobs that humans will do best. You won’t find any conveyor belts or robots in our kitchens. Just humans making 300 fishcakes, by hand!
Our dream is to have a strong, majority female team. Women who all have families of their own, and understand putting love and care into every dish. So don’t worry, we have you covered.
While We are Food continues to grow and bring more delicious meals to homes in Durbs, it is our promise to never lose the homely charm and quality of our food, or the personal service we love giving to our customers, who are fast becoming our friends.
