• Since 1924, Robertsons’ spice experts have been journeying around the world in search of the finest herbs and spices. Now they have brought something new to the kitchen that is sure to add worlds of flavour to South African meat dishes.

    Introducing the new Robertsons Rubs – an artisanal range of spice rubs, each accented with a unique ingredient and expertly blended, with no MSG added, no artificial preservatives or fillers.

    The new Robertsons Rubs are inspired by the culinary flavours of Morocco, Brazil, Asia, South Africa, Mexico and America, and feature key ingredients such as Juniper Berries, Smoked Paprika, Chipotle Flakes and more. The Robertsons Rubs are ideal for braaing, grilling or oven cooking and can be paired with red meat, chicken or seafood to add a complex and varied flavour experience to any dish.

    No matter your choice of meat or cooking method, with this innovation, Robertsons continues to take the guesswork out of making new and exciting dishes with a burst of flavour.

    Robertsons have teamed up with some of South Africa’s most-loved chefs, Ash Heeger, owner of the restaurant Ash, Jason Whitehead and none other than The Hostess herself, Lorna Maseko to launch these wonderful rubs. We joined them at the launch and we enjoyed a lovely showcase of the new Robertson Rubs.
