We don’t do things any old way. We do things the Amajoya way.
To be a surgeon, one needs to possess certain qualities, like a complex understanding of science, extreme precision, natural talent and a whole lot of passion. These same qualities are just as essential for a master confectioner. Fancy that.
It was just over twenty-five years ago that our founder, Jonathan, decided to follow his heart, (or was it was his sweet-tooth?) and train as a sweet-maker at Germany’s most prestigious confectionery school. A neurosurgeon, his doctor’s understanding of science and chemistry gave him a distinct edge.
On his return home to South Africa, he was able to craft and hone his recipes, using the finest ingredients to create distinctly different and delightful candy. With its unique textures and sumptuous, luxurious flavours, family and friends were impressed, and in 2010, the Amajoya artisanal confectionary company was born.
