A visit to a CAB Foods store is like stepping into a dream pantry filled with an assortment of freshly packed cooking and baking ingredients, fragranced with the sweet aroma of our baking premixes. Our stores are located in Brackenfell, Bellville, Somerset West, Kenilworth and Worcester and our online store is a click away for a convenient shopping experience.
CAB Foods started with a love for cooking and baking that was inspired by the Lahoud childhood memories. Interwoven with the aromatic smell of their grandmothers’ baking with treats such as the most amazing custard cookies and soetkoekies. "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 hearts” says Managing Director, Elaine Lahoud. The tradition still carries on with the new generation of Lahoud grandkids with the highlight of the year is creating gingerbread houses and decorating them with all sorts of sweets before Christmas.
When the family decided to start CAB Foods they knew it wouldn’t be easy, but they knew they had the support of each. 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, and then 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.
At CAB Foods 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.
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 also been added to offer you everything you need for that special occasion. CAB Foods also offers edible icing prints for cakes and cupcakes (find out more here). A new range of exciting helium balloon designs are introduced regularly and can be filled at any of our stores. For the hospitality industry we also offer bulk cooking and baking ingredients at wholesale prices.
