They say food is love, and when prepared by passionate chefs who have a love and respect for the ingredients they use, combined with a creative eye and hand, that love is passed on to the customer. South African chef and entrepreneur, Ntediseng Mwale (Teddy), founder of Excellere Foods, is passion personified in the kitchen.
What does your company do?:
At Excellere Foods, we specialise in catering and confectionery.
What inspired you to start your company?
I have always loved to cook. The thought of making money and improving my life and the lives of those around me, by doing what I love just inspired me to go for it. I am also about woman empowerment. As a mother of two girls, I wanted them to grow up seeing that a woman is capable and equipped to care for herself and those around her, not just emotionally and physically, but financially too.
Why should anyone use your service or product?
I love what I do and I believe people can actually taste as much in my food. There is cooking, and then there is cooking with love and passion. The difference is in the taste and presentation. I care for my customers' health and well-being. As a result, each time i cook my heart out. That, is one attribute that very few people posses.
