Chateau Gateaux was founded on an obsession with food safety and exceptional quality. All of the products are handmade from scratch in an ISO22000 certified facility. Where possible, they make their own fillings, toppings, glazes, mousses, bavarois, caramels, meringues, japonaise, etc. using a unique version of the classic European recipes, without the use of artificial pre-mixes or added preservatives.
Each and every cake that leaves their factory has been hand-crafted using only the finest, freshest, natural ingredients. When you order one of their products, expect a cake filled with fresh farm cream and no artificial vegetable-based imitation cream fillings. Only fine chocolate, real fruit and other quality ingredients are used to flavour and create their exceptional range of products.
The retail market has been tested over the years with various offerings. Initially, the products were merchandised and sold in a chilled state, which drastically reduced their shelf-life and meant wastage was high. Relaunched to be sold in a frozen state, the small retail range of 18cm gâteaux found favour with the South African consumer and encouraged the company to launch the Château Gâteaux Pâtisserie brand in 2010.
Their gorgeous 18cm octagon-style cake box stole the show in the Food Category at the prestigious 2015 South African Institute of Packaging Awards, held in Sandton. Competing against some of South Africa’s most prestigious brands, their cake box was awarded the gold medal, impressing the judges with its complex design, functionality and good looks.
Part of its charm comes from how it has been engineered with the utmost care to ensure efficient construction, freezer compatibility and oil or moisture resistance. All, so their hand-made delicacies retain their aesthetic impact and mouth-watering taste when opened by the customer.
The box is also totally recyclable and has a side opening to facilitate the loading and extracting of cake in production and serving situations. Voila!
In the interests of caring for the environment, Chateau Gateaux have commenced a programme to eliminate as many environmentally damaging packaging material elements as is possible and practical. Given the large quantities used in packaging our products, eliminating polystyrene was the first obvious task.
All polystyrene has now been replaced with 100% recyclable and biodegradable materials.
Their new packaging has been designed and tested to deliver the equivalent insulation and protective properties of polystyrene.
