100 years of Joe + Kels!
Issued by Joekels Brands - Apr 25th 2017, 11:48
2017 is a big year for Joekels Tea Packers, with founders and Directors Joe and Jonathan both celebrating their 50th birthdays.
Joe and Jonathan joined forces and names (Joe Swart + Jonathan Kelsey) to create Joekels Tea Packers in 1994, initially running a small operation out of Joe’s garage.
Fast forward 23 years, and Joekels is the third largest tea manufacturer in South Africa, with the fastest growing Black tea in the country (Tetley), the second largest Rooibos brand (Laager), and the biggest kids tea brand (Tea4Kidz).
Joe and Jonathan are still the heart of the business and are well-loved and respected not only by the Joekels family but by the industry as a whole. And so we raise our teacups (and our pinkies) and wish them both a very happy 50th birthday.

Foodies Lebo and Tebo Ndala from @withlovefromthetwins are the faces and recipes behind South African favourite, Laager Rooibos. We spent some time getting to know Lebo and Tebo better and finding out more about their love of cooking and how they got into the foodie industry.
Tea is a pick-me-up in a cup. Warm or cold, it soothes and refreshes; it’s a great stress-reliever. And with a list of health benefits to go with it, it’s quite the overachiever. You can’t put a price on a great cuppa, but if you did, you’d be happy to know it’s a super affordable treat.
This heritage month, iconic South African Rooibos brand Laager is celebrating being a household name since 1945 with the launch of 2 new flavoured Rooibos-based products.
With the biggest teabag in South Africa, the fastest growing Black tea in the country, and the second biggest Pure Green tea on the market (less than a year into launch), Tetley continues to surprise and impress South Africans with its quality blends and affordable pricing.
