Duduzile Joyce Ncanana
Just Meats Primary Co-Op
Duduzile Joyce Ncanana owns Just Meats Butchery which is located in the Sundumbili area of Mandeni. Mama Joyce, as she is affectionately known, recalls that she has been a business woman from an early age, selling sweets at school.
Just Meats is a butchery with a Shisanyama (braai area). Just Meats sells tender A grade meat, as well as meats for curries and stews.
Just Meats also makes wors, biltong and cold meats, using Joyce’s own special recipes.
In the Shisanyama customers can choose the type and the size of meat they prefer which is then braaid on the premises.
Just Meats also does free local deliveries to bulk buyers.
The business has a reputation for its social conscience – Joyce and her team work continuously to create jobs within the community, “which goes a little way to alleviate the scourge of poverty”.
Mama Joyce and Just Meats were the winners of the iLembe Chamber’s The Entrepreneur 2014 competition, and the winner of UKZN’s Champions Programme in 2015.
