Darling Sweet fleur de sel (‘flower of salt’), with its delicate and complex flavours, transforms an ordinary meal into a culinary experience. Use as a finishing salt on any dish that needs that extra lift just before it is served: salads, fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, and desserts. Our fleur de sel is also a perfect table salt.
Darling Sweet came into existence when Frits van Ryneveld and Hentie van der Merwe met in September 2013 and decided to combine their passion for art and food, and love for quality and design, starting a toffee factory in Darling. Their idea was to produce a range of high-quality toffees that are handcrafted using traditional methods and with no artificial colorants, flavorings or preservatives added. Furthermore, to produce a range of toffee flavors that are unique to Darling and its surrounds, using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible.
In July 2014, they converted Frits’ 24m2 antique shop into a production kitchen and employed their first two members of staff. Since then Darling Sweet has grown at a remarkable pace. They now employ 24 full time members of staff, produce their toffee products in an architectural landmark of Darling and have become a top tourist spot in the quaint town.
