South Africa's favourite braai has gotten even tastier with a healthier twist

Braai has become an integral and much-loved part of South Africans culture. It's a common practice shared many households bringing friends and family members together.

With the move towards a healthier lifestyle, small business Funky Ouma has come to the braai party. It manufactures 100% all natural Braai and cookings salts who enjoy a more natural seasoning option.

Owner Johannita Eksteen says their products are a healthier substitute to everyday salts and spice.

We use authentic herbs and we package all our salts in quality grinders...

Johannita Eksteen, Owner of Funky Ouma

We use low sodium slats and we don't put MSG or preservatives.

Eksteen says their herbs are all naturally produced from their small garden which is well maintained.

Funky Ouma sells its product to a niche market like delis, farm stall, butcheries, curios shops, health stores and pharmacies.
