New Product Alert: Robertsons Introduces A New Range Of Artisanal Rubs


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 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.

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.

“As the leader in the herbs and spices market, we are proud to bring this premium innovation.” said Marketing Director, Antony Segal “We are excited by the wonderful taste profiles and the opportunity they present for Robertsons to offer South African food lovers even more unique flavour for their dishes. We’re especially proud that our rubs range is preservative-free and blended using non-irradiated ingredients from around the globe.”

New 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.

To launch the new rubs range, Robertsons has partnered with three exciting chefs – Ash Heger, owner of the restaurant Ash, Jason Whitehead and none other than The Hostess herself, Lorna Maseko, who will help to showcase the new rubs range through their own personalised recipes.

I am so excited about the new Robertsons artisanal rubs range,” said Lorna Maseko, “It’s been a wonderful experience exploring the different flavours with my meat dishes and I can’t wait to share my recipe ideas. I’m sure that South Africans are going to love these unique flavours and really enjoy cooking with them at home.”
