About Mr. Mozzie’s:

Mr. Mozzie’s is a household name synonymous with quality, taste and consistency and stocks a wide range of over 150 cold meats, sausages, patés, salamis, bacon, air-dried meats and fresh beef, pork and lamb cutsat their two retail stores (Argyle Road and La Lucia Mall). Mr. Mozzie’s is owned and run by Warwick Rebeck who joined the business in 1997. It was founded by his father-in-law Marcel Wouters, fondly known as “Mozzie”. Wouters was born in the Netherlands and then moved to South Africa. As a young man Wouters ran the small shop, which prospered into the iconic business you see today.

The secret of Mr. Mozzie’s success, he says, lies in the quality and consistency of its products. Quality is something that Mr. Mozzie’s is renowned for and even in good times and bad, quality will always sell. “There are always people who are willing to buy quality.”

He also attributes his success to his amazing, dedicated and loyal team of over 40 people. “Some of our staff have been with us for more than 40 years. They are part of our Mr. Mozzie’s family.” The wholesale division of the business continues to grow. “We supply a large range of lines to hotels and restaurants, places that want the best quality money can buy. That is our kind of customer.” said Warwick Rebeck.

Let’s Celebrate National Braai Day Together!

 

So why do we celebrate Heritage Day and National Braai Day?

• National Heritage Day is a public holiday in South Africa. Our government set this day aside for all South Africans to celebrate our rich heritage.
• Across race, language, region and religion, we all share one common heritage. It is called many things: Chisa Nyama, Braai and Ukosa to name few. Although the ingredients may differ, the one thing that never changes is that when we have something to celebrate we light fires, and prepare great feasts.
• We encourage all South Africans to unite around fires, share our heritage and wave our flag on 24 September every year.
• We liken this initiative to annual celebrations cherished by other leading nations of the world; Thanksgiving for Americans, St Patricks Day for the Irish, Bastille Day for the French and Australia Day for Australians.
• This is a noble cause, which will contribute to strengthening South Africa as a nation through this act of nation building and social cohesion.

Did You Know? On 5 September 2007, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Emeritus Archbishop Doctor Desmond Tutu was appointment as patron of the National Braai Day initiative.

So, let’s all unite around a Fire or Braai Stand and celebrate National Braai Day with family, friends and loved ones.
