Can cookies make the world a better place?

alt

If you think cookies can’t make the world a better place, just ask the previously unemployed women of the Khayelitsha Cookie Company, who for the past 8 years have spent their days baking all manner of delicious cookies in the hopes of doing exactly that – and in the process providing a better life for their children.

The company started in 2004 in the Nbuntu training centre in Khayelitsha.  From there the company relocated to Ndabeni in 2006 and since then expanded to occupy 3 units in a business park in Ndabeni.  Staff numbers increased from 2 ladies in 2004 to employing 45 staff currently.

Now in partnership with Pick n Pay and the Expresso Breakfast show on SABC3, the Khayelitsha Cookie Company is giving baking enthusiasts around the country the chance to produce their very own Khayelitsha creation with the launch of an exciting competition on 8 August 2013, which will aim to find SA’s best Rusk/Biscotti and Traditional Cookie recipes.

“The competition is a fun way of finding new recipes for the Khayelitsha Cookie Company,” says Adri Williams, Managing Director of the non-profit organisation. “Our current recipes are family secrets, passed down from generation to generation. We want to give South Africans an opportunity, not to only share their family recipes with the rest of the country, but also to make a lasting impact on the lives of previously unemployed women in Khayelitsha.
