About Leah Bessa
Gourmet Grubb is a few young entrepreneurs from South Africa, trying to change the world one scoop at a time. They have always dreamed of making a difference in the world and ensuring that every single one of us has a better future to look forward to. You hear stories of the 19th century researchers doing crazy experiments in their laboratories. Well, our early days were no different, except it started in a kitchen…
After Leah completed her Masters in Food Science, studying insects as aalternative source of protein, she joined forces with Jean to explore various avenues of introducing insects into the South African market. As true entrepreneurs do, they researched, created, and experimented with various products before finally focusing their efforts on the dairy alternatives industry.
