Belajo Food

Belajo was started as a business for my family, its about family and spending quality time with family. That is why we only source the best products from around South Africa and bring it to you where you can eat and spend some quality time with family.

The table is where the family belongs eating around a table offers the time to talk, Laugh and be happy around a table children learn to talk to parents and parents learn about the life of their children. Food is family and family is the most important thing in this life, ask someone who does not have one they will tell you.

For this reason I started BeLaJo (Benn, Lauren and Jordan) this is my wife, son and myself, this business is family.
