Lardiere Fine Foods was founded by pioneer chef Junelle Germishuizen. The business started as an online resource to help foodies procure the finest ingredients for their kitchens – the business was first of its kind in South Africa. In keeping with setting trends in the culinary world, Chef Junelle distilled the idea of hand-crafted fine foods to cater to the travel industry.

Being an entrepreneur at heart, Chef Junelle grew the company and under the advisement of Pavlo Phitides and Aurik Busines Accelerator, soon noticed a gap in the market for a new product. Chef Junelle pivoted the business to supply boutique hotels with artisanal, bespoke Room Treats. She collaborated with the Executive Chef of each hotel to produce a selection of Turndowns that complemented the culinary style of the establishment. Junelle Germishuizen, the pioneer chef and mastermind behind Lardiere Fine Foods brand, with her trusted team of food technicians carefully handcraft each product with the exceptional attention to detail that is synonymous with the Lardiere Fine Foods brand.

Working so closely with her customers, Chef Junelle soon spotted another opportunity to branch out into Food Service Solutions which catered more broadly to the gourmet food industry. South African gourmet chefs have the option of either working with Lardiere Fine Foods to brainstorm new and enticing recipes for their guests and customers, or ordering from a range of artisanal and handmade luxury offerings.

Lardiere Fine Foods strives to lay the foundation for a new standard in fine food services by constantly pushing the envelope on eco-friendly packaging and responsible operations. Lardiere Fine Foods leads the way in ethical consumption in their sourcing and packaging process. Lardiere Fine Foods sources only the best produce from local vendors, and firmly supports local businesses as much as possible. Lardiere room treats make use of a compostable packaging that is made from cornstarch and is 100% biodegradable.
