Intsasafoods is fueled by three diverse, young working professionals in Johannesburg.  With limited time and a tight budget, healthy eating became a luxury that should have been a norm.  This drove them to solve the stressful “What’s for dinner?” debate, with a new venture, a fuss free solution that not only saves you money, but also saves you time.  They have put convenience back into the kitchen and a personal chef a delivery away.
