How do you prepare your meals?
It depends on the product.
- We saw frozen Matangara into blocks and thaw them.
- We thaw chicken livers or gizzards.
- We soak Omakunde and speckled sugar beans.
- Thereafter, the process is the same:
- Transfer a predetermined weight of the product into batching cups.
- Fill a retort pouch with the product.
- Inject steam into the pouch, expelling any remaining air
- Fill the pouch with pre-cooked sauce, seal it, and retort it at a high temperature to sterilise the product while cooking it.
What is meant by shelf life?
A shelf life is a regulated time or period where your product is safe as is of good quality to consume.
What is the shelf life of your products?
Two years from the date of manufacture. Once Opened our products need to be refrigerated and consumed within 48 hours.
How do we maintain a long shelf life of the products?
No preservatives are added to the products.
The products are cooked in a retort machine (operates under the principle of steam cooking) that subject it to high temperatures for a specified time, thus reducing the growth of the harmful micro-organisms and thereby preserving the quality of the product.
What goes well with your meals?
Our products are delicious on their own, but also pair well with bread and other staples foods. The bean meals make for a nutritious breakfast or side dish.
How do you heat up an African Deli meal?
There are three methods:
- Place the pouch in boiling hot water for a few minutes.
