Who we are
Newmans Foods began in 2007 after a bit of a set back in my career. I was unemployed and could not just sit down and feel sorry for myself.
I have always loved cooking and baking and so I started making Coconut Ice and Chocolate Coconut Squares.
In October 2009 I was blessed with a full time job, but I have maintained my love for baking. I could not do it alone anymore so I enlisted the help of my mom and dad. They have been a great help in the family business.
My mom makes the Marshmallows-on-a-Stick and the Rainbow Drops and is responsible for most of the packing and labeling of our products.
My dad is the man who makes the old fashioned Coconut Ice and Peanut Clusters.
Marion, my beautiful wife, helps when she is not looking after our two daughters and two sons.
She will fill in wherever it is needed, even if it means cleaning pots, tidying up ,she is quite handy with a rolling pin.
My daughters are always willing to help although I insist that their school work comes first. I know they would much rather be helping me.
They are a delight to have around and both want to do everything for their daddy.
They help me with labelling and packing.
Newmans Foods truly is a family business with each member playing their part.
I thank God that He has blessed me with this family, who are so willing to help with the business.
