Tell us a little about yourself and your company?
Ndahekelekwa Paulus is a 25 year old young lady who has been creating confectionery treats from her mother’s kitchen for the past 6 years. My deep passion for confections and devotion to work, together with a continuous search for perfection, have all factored into making Fluffy mallows what it is.
Fluffy mallows is a Namibian marshmallow manufacturing business that specializes in producing handcrafted marshmallows. The marshmallows are handcrafted with lots of love and attention to detail to produce insanely, delicious, irresistibly smooth, edible clouds of happiness for marshmallow lovers of all ages. The decadent marshmallows currently available in five amazing flavors Vanilla & Cinnamon, Strawberry & cream, Mint & Chocolate, Lemon and Coconut. The clouds of happiness are available for purchase Klara’s Marke Place, 77 Independence Avenue.
What motivated you to go into that specific product?
Namibia’s manufacturing sector. The Namibian economy is highly dependent on inputs from the primary industries such as mining, fishing and agriculture. In order to break the dependency, Namibia needs to diversify its economy by producing a diverse range of products. Fluffy Mallows is my way of filling the gap in the manufacturing sector.
How will your product compete with other products?
Fluffy Mallows marshmallows are proudly Namibian handcrafted. Secondly, marshmallows have a variety of flavors that are so unique, they create a melt in your mouth, light as a feather, delicious experience.
Where do you want to see your product in the future?
In the near future, I would like to have Fluffy Mallow marshmallows stocked and selling out in all if not most of the super markets in Windhoek. As for the far future, Fluffy Mallows should be stocked all over Namibia with a wider range of product and headed to other Southern African countries.
