Clover has just unveiled its latest mouth-wateringly innovative offering in the Ready to Eat (RTE) category, complete with first-to-Africa FreshVacSeal™ packaging technology, under the Whistling Chef brand. The packaging technology allows consumers to enjoy a fresh meal with an extended shelf life.  


This latest range from Clover is completely unique as it’s the first time this packaging technology has been used in South Africa. The FreshVacSeal™ technology is a patent unique to Clover’s Whistling Chef range that guarantees freshness every time. The meals are preservative free, a source of calcium, colourant free and has protein from 9 amino acids.


The Whistling Chef is not just a clever brand name – these nutritious and delicious meals that offer family favourite recipes, actually whistle in the microwave when they’re perfectly heated! What’s more is that each meal undergoes ten quality checks, has an innovative ‘tray plate’ for easy eating and a first-to-market ‘no pierce’ film.


Launched at Melrose Arch with the help of local celebs Pearl Thusi and Ntokozo Dlamini who led an intrigued crowd to the tasty offerings, Clover’s latest products promise delicious convenience with quality ingredients.

It’s for this exact reason that we’ve created The Whistling Chef range,” says Marketing Manager at Clover, Mone Gerryts. “Made with only the best and freshest ingredients, the Whistling Chef range contains real Clover cheese, milk, butter and cream to ensure a quality, preservative-free product.”


The Whistling Chef offering has launched with five initial variants:

“Our RTE meals contain FreshVacSeal™ technology which means a pasteurised, longer shelf life,” says Mone. “And with the unique whistling packaging there’s no need to pierce the film on the meal either, your meal will literally whistle and let you know when it’s ready.”
