Say hello to Bellair, our in store supplier of the month.
The team at Bellair live by the motto: “Whoever said it has to taste bad for it to be good for you?”
Bellair carob and yoghurt coated dried fruit and nuts have a reputation as products that are not only good for your sweet tooth (and who doesn’t have one of those?) but also for your health. We love these products because they are the perfect alternative to other sugary snacks that can be enjoyed as part of a healthy lifestyle. Whether you’re young or old, these delicious snacks are definitely something to go nuts for.
Almonds, apples rings, apri-dates, bananas, dates, mangoes, sunflower seeds and more…each of these tasty treats are smothered in delicious (and healthy) carob or yoghurt coatings to satisfy your sweet tooth.
From humble beginnings
The Bellair brand all started at the Kloof Padstal in the small town of Montagu 1994. The owners, Willem and Christine Cilliers, saw a need for a product that was more than just simple dried apricots and peaches.
It was during this time that some dried fruit factories in Montagu had a lot of leftover pieces of dried fruit that weren’t suitable to be packed and sold. To see these “unusable” pieces go to waste was not ideal, and so they decided to pack and sell them separately under their “Nibbles” range. Little did the Cilliers’ know that these Nibbles would become a bestseller at the Padstal.
Thereafter they decided to experiment with small batches of Nibbles covered in carob and yoghurt. Well, if the original Nibbles were bestsellers, then these coated ones transcended their success. The rest is history, and Sandra Joubert and her family bought the factory that has grown from strength to strength over the past decade.
At Montagu Dried Fruit and Nuts, we are always looking for ways to bring our loyal customers the best that nature has to offer. This is why we’ve partnered with Bellair.
We believe that Bellair’s commitment to quality makes them a perfect match for the Montagu brand. We are extremely proud to have partnered with them and look forward to seeing what the future holds for them.
