We are an e-commerce consultancy. Most famously, we're the team behind www.yuppiechef.co.za.

As one of the few South African teams to have taken an e-commerce idea from inception through to full scale operation, our experience covers many aspects of the e-commerce landscape including design, development, marketing, customer service, social media and e-commerce operations.

Who we are

The team behind the Galatis Group / Livealchemy partnership are Paul Galatis, Andrew Smith & Shane Dryden.

See us speaking

Between us we've spoken a fair bit on e-commerce, social media and online shopping in SA. If you're looking for a speaker, we're always up for a chat.


Yuppiechef is the only online store in South Africa to have won a Gold Loerie. For now, this is the award we're most excited about, but it's worth mentioning we also won 3 of the 5 categories in the SA E-Commerce Awards as well as 2 Bookmark Awards.

If you'd like to get in touch to share ideas, hear some stories or see our battle wounds, please drop us a line. We spend anything from a handful of hours to a handful of weeks advising people on what we believe makes world class e-commerce, world class.
