Spice4U was officially launched back in 2005 by a passionate butcher and sales professional, Dave Sivier. A drive for delicious meat production meant Dave’s early industry beginnings involved mixing delicious herbs and spices in-house, breaking down fresh meat, processing which includes smoked meats and cooked product. At one point Dave was overseeing a staff compliment of more than 100 people, as well as taking on admin duties.

A spice seller is a spice seller is a spice seller, right? Spice4U breaks the mould of traditional spice distributors, offering a hands-on approach to helping businesses in the food processing and catering industries thrive. The Spice4U brand was established to fill a gap in the KZN market, where Freddy Hirsch spices hoped to distribute their products to customers in need of quality spices and seasonings.

Dave is the knowledgeable leader of the small team, providing customer assistance, sales, and the planning of deliveries. He is joined by his wife and partner, Leysha Sivier, who expertly handles the administration and assists with marketing and running promotions. The third member of our Spice4U team is Aslam Shaik, who is the company driver.

Our Vision

We hope to see our growing brand expand to the point where we can distribute our spices, butchery equipment, catering equipment, and other products to clients across South Africa. The Spice4U sphere of operations currently extends from Durban to Pietermaritzburg (serving all locations south of there), as well as the northern parts of the Eastern Cape.

Our vision is to introduce more people to the versatile Freddy Hirsch range of spices and equipment, and to the range of catering equipment we source directly from manufacturers, and to assist more butchers, caterers, and other food-related businesses with opening up new revenue streams.
