You will find stores in Brackenfell, Bellville, Somerset WestKenilworth and Worcester. For those customers who can’t make it to the stores, the online store is a click away for a convenient shopping experience.

It all started with a love for cooking and baking. Inspired by childhood memories interweaved with the aromatic smell of their grandmothers’ baking with treats such as the most amazing Custard Cookies and Soetkoekies. You can almost taste it just at the thought of it. Having 8 grandchildren to entertain our grandmother had to think out of the box to keep us all busy and that’s how baking became child’s play and crept its way into our little hearts.”

The tradition still carries on with the new generation of Lahoud grand kids. The highlight of the year is the creation of gingerbread houses and decorating it with all sorts of sweets before Christmas.

When the family decided to start CAB Foods they knew it wouldn’t be easy, but they had the support of each other together. They added buckets of faith, an ounce of courage, a gallon of creativity, a few heaped spoons of hard work, a dollop of determination and some more hard work, the secret ingredient in the centre, topping it all off with a generous sprinkle of love for good measure.

At the heart of the company lies a team of truly remarkable people who aspire to bring the love of cooking and baking into your home to inspire you with an exciting range of handpicked products.

“We believe that cooking and baking should be fun, artful, inventive, imaginative, original, tasteful and yet simple, quick and easy to prepare so that you can enjoy the experience and the occasion with your family and friends.”

This is why we have developed a special range of easy to use premixes, ready to use icings and decorations to suit your needs. Complimentary Party and Bakeware ranges have been added to offer you everything you need for that special occasion, all under one roof. CAB Foods also offers edible icing prints for cakes and cupcakes (find out more here). A new range of helium balloons has been launched at our Brackenfell, Somerset West, Bellville, Kenilworth and Worcester stores.
