The Organic People
The Organic People was founded in August 2011, and started by selling 4 flavours of hummus at the Bryanston Organic & Natural Market. Their aim is to create products of natural and organic origin that offer their customers a distinct taste advantage over the conventional preservative laden alternative.
Conventional hummus is normally made from chick pea flour and vegetable oil, while their hummus is created from freshly soaked chick peas and extra virgin olive oil, giving it improved texture and taste. The rest of the ingredients are carefully sourced with emphasis on freshness and provenance. Their range has been expanded to include 6 flavours of hummus, as well as tahini and harissa with many more new products in the pipeline. The Organic People will continue with their emphasis on taste as they add to their range without ever compromising on sourcing the very best organic ingredients available in South Africa.
Vanilla seeds, Vanilla powder, Vanilla extract
All of the ingredients are sourced in South Africa, reducing the carbon footprint, with the exception of the chick peas which come from Cameroon. From the outset it has been important that the products are not only made with the best organic and natural products that can be sourced, but that they are as environmentally friendly as possible. And so, rather than use plastic containers, the containers are made from corn extract which is both bio-degradable and compostable and will return to it's natural state within 12 weeks of being placed in a compost making facility.
