About Black Mamba Chilli

Black Mamba is a fair trade brand made by women in Eswatini (just around the corner!), and they manufacture their range of chilli sauces, pestos, chutneys and jams, all packed in glass, using fresh, locally grown ingredients, and β€œno added nonsense”.

They work with Guba, a local permaculture NGO that trains rural communities in permaculture and green agriculture methods, and collaborates with 50 smallholder farmers (of which 80% are women and the sole breadwinners of their families) to grow organic fresh produce for their products. The positive impact of this partnership reaches over 1,000 individuals in Eswatini, and allows them to make products that are good-for-you, good-for-the-planet, and good for the rural communities of Eswatini. They have also won several Great Taste Awards in the UK for our chilli sauces, and we currently export their range to countries such as the US, the UK, Germany, Norway, and Taiwan.

Now they have embarked on a journey to conquer the hearts and the tummies of the South African chilliheads and ethical foodies by launching their very own e-commerce site!
