The Ukama Kitchen Incubator aims to create an innovative and inclusive economic landscape by supporting low income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their businesses.

By providing affordable commercial kitchen space, technical assistance and access to market opportunities we allow traditional “home cooked”; culturally diverse, foods to enter the formal retail economy.

We focus on women of colour from disadvantaged communities. creating an innovative, vibrant and inclusive enterprise development opportunity.

The advancement of female entrepreneurs and micro-enterprise development is at the heart of Ukama. We help entrepreneurial and passionate small companies by increasing their professionalism, opening up sales channels for their products and helping them achieve and maintain government food safety standards.

The brain child of Cariema Isaacs and Janine Roberts, our Kitchen Incubator is a first for South Africa and innovating the culinary economic landscape in South Africa.
