THE OUMA LEGEND LIVES ON.
The story of OUMA rusks started in 1939 when the great depression spurred Ouma Greyvensteyn and her friends to find ways of helping their community.
Ouma Greyvensteyn started by baking a batch of rusks using her trusted family recipe. After selling these delicious treats to farming families in the community, orders soon started pouring in and a much loved, iconic South African brand was born.
Today Ouma Greyvensteyn is still South Africa’s most famous rusk baker.
The Molteno Story
OUMA Rusks is still proudly produced on the original Friedenburg farm in Molteno where the first OUMA rusks were made.
This small town in the North-Eastern Cape, situated high in the Stormberg Mountain is also known to be South Africa’s coldest town
Employing 230 people but helping a wider community of over 10 000, we continuously strive for all South Africans to always be able to Dip ‘n Ouma!
