AS our name suggests, Food Lover’s Hillcrest has a vision to supply every customer with the highest quality products and the best customer service, combined with “love” that is visible in all our CSI campaigns.

Each of our departments, ranging from the fresh fruit and vegetables section, to the butchery, bakery, deli and coffee shop, constantly searches for the best products to ensure that customers receive the highest quality food at a price that is as terrific as the taste.

Floor manager Kenneth Chetty says Food Lover’s Hillcrest could be called a “specialist store” that caters for every customer’s needs and loves.

“At Food Lover’s, we deliver a whole world of freshness, we believe customer satisfaction begins with the Earth, the land from where the grower creates fine brands and fine produce that are key to our way of doing business.

“We stock national and international products, which enables customers to have the homely as well as international feeling while shopping at our store.”

The store also supports local farmers as their produce is fresh, and creates employment.

“We believe that integrity, trustworthiness and honesty are integral to who we are as a company, and by supporting our local farmers we are creating everlasting relationships with them.”

The Food Lover’s butchery staff’s passion is getting things right and their refusal to compromise on quality is what established their reputation as one of the best butcheries in Hillcrest.

Butchery manager Gancho Petrov has over a decade of experience in the food industry and has a “real passion” for meat.

He said that perfection is always his aim as he consistently achieves the highest level of service and excellence in the food industry.

Petrov is famous for his “man-size” steak and biltong bar, among others.

“We have a very ‘hands-on’ approach and know what our customers want. If we do not have what they want, we source the product and get it for them,” he said.

Bakery manager Ntokoza Shangase has decades of experience because he made his first batch of scones at the age of 12.

“My dad was a baker and the genes are in the family. He taught me that it takes dedication and passion to get the best tasting products.

“The key ingredient to everything I make is ‘love’ coming from the Food Lover’s brand,” he said.

Shangase is famous for the freshest cakes and rolls and has jumped on the Banting revolution bandwagon and stocks Banting bread.

“Our commitment to service means we give customers what they want, when they want it.
“Orders are placed and we bake the goods timeously that are of the best quality thus ensuring customer satisfaction, and which keeps them coming back for more.

Shangase said that at Food Lover’s they look to broaden their product range not only of fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, but also dried and frozen goods to provide new and exciting products.
“We stock the Signature seafood brand, which is of the highest quality product,” Shangase added.

The coffee shop provides daily specials and excellent meals that cater for everyone’s needs.

Talking about their CSI initiatives the owners, husband and wife team Gilbert Rocha and wife Maria, said they always put their community first, and often donate to local non-profit organisations with the aim of making a difference.

They also started the “Free fruit for Children” initiative at their store last year, which was a huge hit.

“We believe that giving back to our community is a real point of difference and one that makes us stand out in the market.

“In addition, our team of specialist buyers have a wealth of experience in procuring the very best quality fresh produce available both locally and internationally.
“We continually assess our suppliers and rigorously monitor everything we supply with a strong emphasis on freshness, flavour and appearance.”

The duo urged customers to pop on down to the store for their Carnival happening this week.

“It’s that time of year again as our carnival is around the corner and you’ll be amazed at this celebration of savings.
“As always, we’ll bring you the lowest prices on a wide variety of products, from fresh produce to hot foods, household goods and more. So pop on down and take advantage of the amazing specials.”

To experience the quality of Food Lover’s, visit the Hillcrest branch from 8 - 6 pm Monday to Friday, 8 – 5 pm on a Saturday and 8 – 2 pm every Sunday or Public Holidays.
