About me

Hi, my name is Piet Smith.

I am a retired Banker with a passion for supplying the BEST Pepper/Salt and Spice grinding mechanisms for the African Continent. 

I started Pepper Mills For Africa in 2005 as a hobby. It then got out of hand! Today it is a delightfully hectic small business which gives me great pleasure.....every day is Friday!!!


Piet and Charlie (factory foreman)

Charlie Letsoalo joined me in 2009. He was my gardener. I asked him to help me with sanding. I tought him the skills and today,  I am not shy to admit, Charlie is a far beter craftsman then I am.
