Namibian-born Johannes - who is better known as "Jannie" - may have come from a retail background, but with his tremendous love for cooking, he was always destined for a career in the food industry. Since moving to the UAE from South Africa, he's spent almost 17 years working with Spinneys. When the proud father of three (and grandfather of four!) isn't spending quality time with his family he loves travelling, and he's an avid cyclist.
Fun fact: His wife, Rosina, is also a keen home cook and excellent baker - in fact, she and Jannie owned and managed a successful pie business together!
