THE SHENK’S STORY
Similarly to a select number of unique family brands, Shenk’s was established through the ideas of a man inspired to bring to life a combination of his unique tastes, special memories and moments with his family – in such a way that these experiences could be shared by anyone with a similar appreciation for good food and good company.
Born in 1963, Shenks indicated his preference for superior quality food from an early age.
So the decision to make his recipes available to the world, is a very natural progression.
In addition to this, his creativity has been much enhanced by his marriage to Mrs Shenks, who brought
a greater sense of flavour to his life – as well as the inspiration for a host of new products with a
distinctive Mediterranean bias.
He contends that the ever-increasing pace of modern living often results in spending less time with our
families, but one area in which this situation can be remedied is around the dinner table. “And if we’re
going to be sharing quality time, we may as well be sharing quality food” is a cornerstone of the Shenk’s
In addition, Shenks feels that two key ingredients should be part of every Shenk’s Product; firstly, that
superior quality should really go without saying – and secondly, a little more understanding of the
product often heightens our appreciation for its unique (and often unconventional) taste and character.
The Shenk’s product range is growing steadily and currently features a wide range of fine sauces and condiments.
Shenk’s Foods are also the licensed South African importers and distributors of Woeber’s fancy
mustards, speciality sauces and vinegars. Woeber’s is the United States’ leading manufacturer
in this field and has been a family business since 1905, when it was founded by Carl Woeber in
Springfield, Ohio. Click here to visit the Woeber’s website.
