"Ma ons kort melk!"

 

Growing up in a family of six meant multiple last-minute grocery runs for yet another bottle of milk…

This was the dilemma that inspired Henk, a young student at the time, to bring back the convenience of doorstep deliveries.

In 2019 he set out with a bottle of milk, his 1400 Nissan Champ and a heart full of dreams. 

To become the modern local milkman. 

Today, the Lekke Fresh milkmen has served over a thousand families in various areas by bringing them the freshest locally sourced goodies to their doorsteps every week.

A South African entrepreneur story


“After graduating from university I took a leap of faith to venture on my own and turn my idea into a business that serves local families.

As word caught on and families started loving the convenience of doorstep deliveries, 

A milk turned into milk, bread & eggs, and the demand spread from Stellenbosch to Durbanville, Paarl, Gordons Bay and other areas. 

With a little bit of faith, the Lord and a good sense of humor a lot can be accomplished.”

– Henk van der Merwe
