Khaya Cookie Company- Quest For Capetown


It's always nice to hear about passionate entrepreneurial NYU alumni who are determined to make the world a better place. Alicia Polak is one such alumna. She is the founder of the Khaya Cookie Company, which employs and trains jobless South Africans as skilled artisan bakers. For every 1500 boxes of cookies sold they create 1 new job in South Africa. For every 500 orders packed they create 4 new jobs at their distribution center located in Philadelphia, PA.

We are excited to announce that the Khaya Cookie Company has just launched a contest that could you send you and a friend on a ten day trip to South Africa. All you have to do is purchase 3 boxes of cookies to be entered into the contest to win the trip or other great prizes. More importantly, your contribution goes to a wonderful cause.

All the contest details can be found at

We had the chance to sit down and talk with Alicia about NYU and her company. Click here to read the interview.
