Our pies and savouries are made in the South of
Johannesburg by people of Lenasia so this community is very important
to us. We employ over 500 people at our bakery
and retail stores and generations of families have been - and still are
- part of our family. We're proud of the things we do locally and here are just
a few examples ...
It’s in all our interests that young people grow up knowing
about food, nutrition and healthy eating. That’s why, when we were approached
by the Imperial Holdings Ukhamba Education initiative, we were pleased to begin
a series of workshops for local schools, covering simple food microbiology and
advice on the safe handling of food. We also offer the chance to take a look
around our factory and run mini ‘taste panels’.
We have also realised the importance of education particular
in mathematics and we have thus developed a learning program whereby we
participate in workshops at schools and using our various shaped snacks and
incorporating basic Geometry we educate learners using a fun yet yummy
approach . ( include pics of samoosa and geometry)
Our pies and savouries are eaten at sports stadia throughout
Gauteng. As a result, we think sport is a great place to start tackling the
challenges laid out by the government to the food industry for changing the
SA’s dietary habits. From 2013 onwards,
Delhi Delicious will be exploring ways in which we can become actively involved
in amateur football throughout the country. We want to promote active
lifestyles and the understanding that there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a Delhi
Delicous pie during the match – if you have the occasional kick-around yourself
Lenasian and Proud!
Delhi Delicous have been part of the fabric of the South
African life for generations. Lenasians,
Joburgers, Gautengers and South Africans of all ages and walks of life enjoy
our pies and savouries.
