Welcome to the Khayelitsha Cookie Company
Our mission was to create a company that could not only produce the best cookies in South Africa, but which also radically changed the lives of everyone involved in the company. For our customers, we produce the biggest, best range of baked goods – chocolate chunk cookies, ginger snaps, nutty fudge brownies and shortbread cookies. For our employees, we give every opportunity for significant growth and career expansion.
We hire previously unemployed women from Khayelitsha and then train and skill them in permanent, affirming employment.
South Africa has one of the largest income inequalities in the world. The average income of the richest 20% of South African households is 45 times more than the average income of the poorest 20% of households, largely black and mostly African.
