Elzea Snacks prove that local is lekker!

Established in 1975 by Germans, Eberhard Grubner-Meyer and Burkhard Buchner in East London; the company’s initial product offering was Amahewu, “Shake shake”, a fermented, cooked, slightly sour maize porridge. The botanical name for maize – zea mayz – led to East London Zea Products or Elzea for short.  

The Company changed hands a few times and in 1990 it began to produce soft maize products and naks.

In November 2009, husband and wife couple Tyron and Melinda Power bought the business along with a wonderful team of motivated, hardworking people that continue today to set the business apart from its competitors. In February 2010, The Elzea Snacks footprint has grown with operations in the Western Cape, Gauteng & Free State. The company continues to grow from strength-to-strength as new snack offerings are added to the Elzea range.

The Company changed hands a few times and in 1990 it began to produce soft maize products and naks.

2018 saw the company expand its range to a variety of biscuits & sweets supplied to its broad network of customers. These products continue to enhance our promise of sharing the fun and sharing more flavours!
