R&B

R&B was inspired by Mezimbite’s first workers – Rosalinda & Beatriz – two young women working as market gardeners and nurserymen who were caught pinching vegetable sets from Mezimbite – and facilitated by Abdulla Armade, our late (and wonderfully corrupt) nurseryman – to grow their own vegetables, rice and beans in their machambas at home.

It is this simple act that has inspired Mezimbite to create R&B – reminiscent to basic soul food – and to provides the best quality food and sustenance to the world over (including the locals). :)
