I love this company - we visited their kiosk in Eswatini where they work with local communities to grow the ingredients. A percentage of proceeds goes to the Black Mambas all-female anti-poaching unit in the Balule area of Kruger Park. Besides this - I LOVE this pesto - this is our 4th jar and we buy it as gifts. A nice wholewheat toast, this pesto, some cheese and an egg on top is to die for. Also recommend the jalapeno coriander pesto although not available on FTN I don't think.

Absolutely FANTASTIC PRODUCT!! I love both pesto & spicy food and to have both in one product - amazing!! Having it with almost every meal - great as a basting for spicy chicken on the braai - a must for every food lover!!

Don't bother making your own - this is delicious and the real deal - full of flavour.
I will be using this in my restaurant from now on.

I love FTN so this review doesn’t reflect on this site. But the product is gross! I’m a decade plus vegan foodie - experimental with my palate and open to all flavors. From mild to super spicy I love everything. BUT THIS PESTO IS BAD. The flavor profile does not blend and the intense bitterness is nearly *nearly* inedible!! Plus I bought four jars to try!!! Ugh!!! I’ll be back to add to this review if I find some way to make this palatable over the next few weeks. I have no hopes. Do NOT BUY! There are much better options for pesto (Superfood brand on this same store).
