Justt Baked


While her only quest as a teenager was saving up for a trip to Paris, Lameez Abrahams never imagined that her creative ability starting at Frank Joubert Art School in Cape Town would eventually tie in with her strong lineage of home kitchen experts.

Following a winding path at CPUT with a love of fashion, and then choosing to focus on her three children, she never imagined that what was a passionate hobby would become a sought after product within Cape Town. After many years of contemplation and doing it for pure pleasure, the brand Justt Baked was born in 2015 and catapulted to popularity not only due to her excellent quality product, but also due to the personal prowess Lameez has when dealing with people.

Earlier this year, Lameez decided to finally fulfil her lifelong dream of visiting Paris and add the cherry to her culinary cake, when on her arrival there,  she enrolled for the Macaron Technical Masterclass at La Cuisine.

Lameez has managed to combine her creative skill of baking with her creative ability of cake decoration to produce extraordinary baked goods.

Petal & Post


Petal&Post is the inspiration of Kim du Plessis, an urban-planner with a passion for floristry, who became aware of the need for affordable, quality flower delivery options in a South African market dominated by expensive boutique flower delivery services where, for the average-income person, the luxury of flower ordering is reserved only for life’s special occasions.

“I felt that there was space for a service in South Africa that delivers slightly smaller, reasonably-priced posies that are not ‘overworked’, but rather have a unique, almost ‘wild’ feel to them — and so Petal&Post came to life.”

Kim is hoping to expand the business in Cape Town, to deliver flowers five days a week. She would also love to launch Petal&Post launch in Joburg and Durban in the future.

The Duchess


The Duchess Team Bio

The Duchess is the brainchild of Johannes Le Roux; a Cape Town-native with a background in advertising and brand launches. In partnership with Inus Smuts, a long-time friend and collaborator, the duo developed The Duchess with local botanists and brewers.

The artisan design of The Duchess was created in partnership with Fanakolo, a design studio based in Stellenbosch. Using delicate linear drawings, the botanicals form the framework of The Duchess’ visual, with The Duchess herself featuring as the elegant figurehead; the mysterious and sophisticated woman who has become the icon of the brand.

Brand Bio: The World’s First Non-alcoholic Gin & Tonic

Welcome The Duchess; the worlds’ first ready-to-drink, virgin gin & tonic – an elegant, sugar-free alternative to alcohol. Crafted using natural botanical extracts traditionally found in gin, The Duchess retains authentic gin tasting notes with zero alcohol.


The Duchess’ botanists made this possible by blending re-distilled juniper berries with their own botanically infused tonic water. This not only gives The Duchess that distinct gin & tonic taste, but also adds beautiful aromatic layers of orange peel, all spice, star anise and devil’s claw. This refreshing drink also comes guilt-free as The Duchess doesn’t contain any sugar and is naturally sweetened using Stevia and Xylitol.

As founder Johannes Le Roux comments, “The Duchess was created for the conscious consumer – the healthy, discerning individual who wants the option of an adult beverage without alcohol. Whether at a business lunch or being the designated driver, for personal or religious reasons, The Duchess now offers you the choice of a sugar-free, calorie-free, and hangover-free refreshment.”


As the world experiences a resurgence of the gin trend, and a general move away from alcohol, The Duchess offers a beautifully crafted drink that marries both worlds. The Duchess effortlessly solves the dilemma of ‘what to drink when you’re not drinking’

Originally from Taiwan, Kevin moved to South Africa when he was 15. Though he moved to South Africa, he still held onto his Taiwanese heritage and traditions. One of those being his passion and love for tea, particularly bubble tea which is commonly found in Taiwan. For Kevin, having authentic bubble tea and bringing it to South Africa, it was like bringing a small piece of home to South Africa. Drinking tea is part of his and his family’s everyday life. When asked about his favourite tea, without hesitation says that green tea is his favourite.

The process for making TeAwesome’s bubble tea is freshness and offering the customer as much knowledge as they need to know exactly what they’re putting in their body. All the teas are sourced from the family’s own tea farm and are organically grown. To keep with our goal for freshness, the tea is brewed twice a day to ensure that customers are getting the best benefits of each tea. For our milk teas, we use non-dairy creamers, which make our tea vegetarian and vegan friendly. Our teas are sweetened with a natural fructose sweetener and customers have the option to change the sugar level to suit the sweetness they want.


Because of this, we’re able to provide our customers with the healthiest and freshest bubble tea available.

Our branding stems from this concept with the use of a tea leaf which drips down to form our tea. The stem of the leaf can be changed to show the iconic straw used to drink bubble tea.
