Following the growing demand for locally crafted premium products, Nettari has launched South Africa’s first local artisanal crafted premium flavoured syrup range, inspired by the quality of the South African terroir and the fine ingredients it produces. It’s the perfect complement for Instabean instant frappe and latte blends.

Both brands were co-founded by Lanie van Schalkwyk and her business partner Robert Burton. The Nettari range was launched with 10 flavour variants in August 2016 and has now expanded to over 30 flavour variants. Lanie developed each product in her own kitchen at home, using her expertise that she’d gained while in the corporate world heading up product innovation teams for international ingredient suppliers, specialising in dairy, fruit syrups and purees, and dessert applications.

Now all product development and manufacturing is done in-house at their Cape Town FSSC 22000 accredited manufacturing facility. They also have a facility based in Cape Town that offers product application guides and makes tailor-made syrups, purees, latte and frappe powder blend development solutions for the hospitality trade.

Nettari’s “local is lekker” approach has raised the bar by producing a premium quality and affordable flavoured syrup locally that is readily available.

Both the Nettari and Instabean ranges have multipurpose applications and can be used for various applications from cocktails, mocktails, craft sodas and milkshakes to smoothies, savoury applications and hot, cold and ice blends. Add a little Nettari or Instabean to your next freshly brewed cup of coffee or transform your milkshakes and cocktails into a rocking experience. Need some inspiration?
