Located amid the beautiful Cape winelands, the team at Banhoek Chilli Oil are passionate about the environment. Our production processes have been carefully designed to minimise wastage, and we have ongoing recycling initiatives on-site in order to minimise our environmental footprint. Aside from relying on the sun to dry our chillies, as far as possible our production kitchens run on solar energy, and we are investigating future sources of geothermal power.
South Africa is a country with enormous inequality and social challenges, not least soaring unemployment levels. To provide as many employment opportunities as possible Banhoek Chilli Oil always favours human capital over automation.
The bulk of our employees are drawn from the disadvantaged communities of the Banhoek valley, and we always hire locally before looking further afield for specific skill-sets. Hiring locals helps to alleviate social issues in our immediate area, but also ensures staff can save on transport costs by walking to work.
We have also instituted an Emerging Farmers programme to uplift local growers. Our dream, our goal, is that eventually we will be able to purchase all of our chillies from the local community, contributing much needed secondary employment and income to the area.
Last, but certainly not least, we assist in the employment prospects of those in the local community by providing complimentary wireless internet access, as well as assistance with creating a curriculum vitae for job application, as required.
What our customers say:
As a chef specializing in Thai cuisine I would like to say that Banhoek Chilli oil is the best chilli oil I have ever used. Whilst still having a good bite it compliments and uplifts countless dishes rather than overpowering them. A WINNER on all fronts!!
This is, quite simply, the best chilli oil ever: it is light, delicious, bursting with flavour, and delivers just the right amount of punch. Perfect for cooking and drizzling on practically everything.
The best chilli oil on the market, a depth of taste and flavour that you just don’t get with other chilli oils.
Great balance of heat and flavour. An essential in every pantry.
There is a flat rate of £3.50 for delivery per order
