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.

Pepper Mills for Africa and CrushGrind have reached an agreement whereby Pepper Mills for Africa will purchase stock and supply all individual craftsmen and hobbyists in Africa.

How did this come           about?

There are many hobbyists and craftsman in Africa who want to manufacture their own salt and pepper grinders either for their own use or to give as gifts. Other craftsmen wish to open their own small woodworking businesses.
