A lady with a vision for delicious sweets created the first batch of decadent nougat and started the Coach House Nougat Company.
There was a surplus of Macadamia nuts on the farm where Guy and Jane Matthews started the old Coach House Hotel. The nuts were being used in pies, savoury dishes and ultimately nougat. Jane stirred the first pot in 1994 and ignited a hand-made nougat revolution in South Africa.
The company started distributing the fine product throughout South Africa and, as demand rose, they set up a factory (creating employment largely for women in the Limpopo province and specifically the surrounding rural areas), which has empowered local families ever since.
Many others jumped on the nougat bandwagon but no-one makes nougat quite like we do.
Over the years we have expanded our confectionery repertoire to include Macadamia nut brittle as well as seriously nutty brittle slabs and delicious shortbread biscuits with Macadamia nuts.
Tuck in, you’ll be nuts if you don’t and nuts about us if you do!
