Be A Smart Cookie

You may have heard of (or hopefully tasted!) Mama Bongi’s scrumptious Vegan Choc Chip Cookies, but do you know the story behind this local business? This Woman’s Month, we would like to put the spotlight on the wonder woman who is taking the cookie world by storm!


Mama Bongi started her journey making cookies for her mentor’s clients. With this growing demand, Mama Bongi’s was born. The business has flourished, and Mama Bongi has been able to support her family in Zimbabwe, as well as provide work opportunities for others. The team includes Sylvia, her trusty sidekick and baker, Prince, an incredible cook, Simba, the reliable delivery man, and Nancy, the admin angel! With this cookie crew in the kitchen, Mama Bongi is fast becoming a pantry staple!

These cookies are jam-packed with vegan chocolate chips and, with their reduced sugar content, you know you can reach for another one to curb the craving!

So be a smart cookie and head on over to your local Western Cape Wellness Warehouse store to pick up a packet of Mama Bongi’s cookies today!
