Real change is not achieved overnight - it happens one step at a time.
Our “happy place” is Cresset House. This is our tangible
social conscience at work because this is where our
bread and baked products are lovingly made.
Cresset House is a Non-Profit Organisation that
is home to many intellectually challenged adults.
They have a small bakery on their premises in
Midrand, South Africa. Any fruit or vegetables
we need for the Chill Innovative Foods kitchen
is first sourced from Cresset Houses’
organically grown gardens.
Our support of Cresset House provides practical
sustainable work for those who would not be
able to work in an everyday environment.
It also assists in achieving their goal of
setting up satellite bakeries in the
disadvantaged communities for
those who are also intellectually challenged.

We are seriously engaged with social responsibility and sustainability issues. Our Good
Business Practice Journey is a comprehensive plan that’s making a difference.
We are passionate about our country and our community and empowering
future generations via education.
We employ people who have the courage and determination, but sometimes lack the
ability to read; yet, we employ them. At Chill Innovative Foods, we have adult
literacy training; have many talks and discussions regarding the challenges
that face our daily lives. Included in the topics discussed are rape and
abuse, HIV/AIDS and “Your Constitutional Rights as a South African”.
Creating awareness and providing information is on the top of Chill Innovative Foods’
list of priorities, so that we all can make informed choices. This is of paramount
importance to us. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use
to change the world” – a quote by Nelson Mandela. This quote is on the
website of TEARS (Transform Education About Rape & Sexual Abuse).
TEARS is an organisation that has a very special place at
Chill Innovative Foods and forms an integral part of our
education for all communities.
