Meet the Team Behind the Snacks: Our Passion for Plants!


Ever wondered who's behind the delicious, plant-based snacks you love? At Nanuki, we're a family-owned business fueled by a shared passion for healthy eating and a whole lot of love for food! Today, we want to introduce you to some of the amazing people who make our company tick, and share the stories that ignite their dedication to creating incredible plant-based treats.

From Cafes to Michelin Stars: Nadia, Our Culinary Mastermind

Our journey began with Nadia, a woman whose love for food has taken her on incredible adventures. After earning a business management degree, she opened a charming cafe in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Never one to settle, she then dove headfirst into professional cookery and patisserie studies in Cape Town. Her culinary journey continued with a prestigious position as a pastry chef at a top-10 fine dining restaurant. A thirst for exploration led her to a tropical island, and eventually to the vibrant Middle East. It was there that she met Fouad, the love of her life.

From Bakery Owner to Banking Whiz: Fouad, Our Business Backbone

Fouad, too, boasts an impressive background. Beginning his career as a successful entrepreneur with his own bakery, he later transitioned to the world of banking. When they started their own family, both Nadia and Fouad found themselves frustrated by the lack of healthy, clean-ingredient snacks available. This shared concern sparked a fire within them, and together they embarked on a mission to create a better option for families like theirs.

Growing a Dream, Growing a Team

Their journey, which began as a family's quest for healthy snacks, has blossomed into a company of 18 passionate individuals. Over the past few years, we've learned the ropes of everything from manufacturing and retail to marketing and design. We've even embarked on the fascinating journey of mastering chocolate-making from scratch—talk about dedication!

A Shared Passion for Plants

What truly unites our team is a deep love for plant-based ingredients and a desire to create delicious snacks that are good for you and kind to the planet. Each team member brings their unique expertise and perspective to the table, and it's this collaborative spirit that fuels our innovation and creativity.

We hope this little glimpse into our team has given you a taste of the passion and dedication that goes into every [Your Company Name] snack. We're excited to continue growing and sharing our love for delicious, plant-powered treats with the world!
