The founder 

I'm Vhongani Shumba, the proud founder of mi butter

As a local woman entrepreneur, I embarked on this remarkable endeavor with a passion for both exceptional flavours and the culinary magic that brings them to life. My love affair with gourmet cooking blossomed as I delved into experimenting with new recipes. An idea took root – one that would transform plain salted butter into a canvas for the rich, aromatic symphonies of herbs and spices.

Growing my own herbs at home, I would infuse their vibrant essence into my dishes, elevating them to new heights of taste and pleasure. Through these experiments, I stumbled upon a concept that was destined to flourish, and thus, mi butter was born.

But mi butter is more than just a brand; it's an extension of my very being. My heart beats for entrepreneurship, and my soul is entwined with the world of gastronomy. The pursuit of excellence and the relentless drive to offer gourmet creations that tantalize the senses are at the core of mi butter's ethos.
