About the project

Señor Chef is a unique fundraising project for schools. Selected quality products can be purchased, at normal retail prices, while supporting your preferred school.

Parents don't necessarily have money for luxuries, and therefore everyday household products, that would've been purchased anyway, are on sale by Señor Chef.

Products include herbs and spices, marinades, oils, vinegars, sauces, coffee, tea, cake mixes, biltong, popcorn, nuts, dried fruit, rusks, cookies, cleaning products and plactic bags.

Brands include Ina Paarman's, Froggit, Walker Bay, Spur, ButtaNutt, Cape Deli, Montagu, Mamamac's, Biggi, Safari, RedEspresso, Wiesenhof Coffee Roastery and Señor Chef.

THANKS TO SEÑOR CHEF, INA PAARMAN’S KITCHEN AND OTHER SUPPLIERS WORKING TOGETHER, YOUR SCHOOL CAN PARTICIPATE IN OUR UNIQUE FUNDRAISING PROJECTS.

Testimonials & Achievers

In each category, winners receive a further 3% of their total project turnover, and first, second and third place also receive a product hamper from Ina Paarman's.

Congratulations to all these achievers; you surely must have had the right ingredients for a winning recipe!
