Frozen Fruit Suppliers: The Berry Lady Story

How I Started My Local Female-Run Business

I have always had the dream of owning my own business and being my own boss.

After reaching total frustration in my career, I shared this dream with some friends at a braai. It was here that I realised I could take things into my own hands.  This was the day that I decided to pave my way toward independence and the life I always wanted.

From Teacher to Berry Lady

Using the skills that I had acquired throughout my career, I took the brave step into the world of female entrepreneurship. As a former teacher, I understand the importance of efficiency and communication. Today I pride myself on saying that I have built a business that provides excellent customer service and prompt delivery for the convenience of our customers.

Your One-Stop Frozen Fruit Suppliers Shop

I recognised a local need for fresh and frozen fruit that are of high quality, but at the same time more affordable than your local supermarket. Starting with the original superfood, the berry, I began sourcing and selling frozen fruit, thus The Berry Lady was created.

To Full Fruition

Today, The Berry Lady store not only sells frozen fruit, but our menu is continually growing and includes fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, artisan ice cream, and sorbet.
