South Africa’s most loved rusk brand, OUMA, is on a mission to make the festive season extra special this year by reuniting families with their nearest and dearest.

Simply enter to win on the OUMA Rusks Facebook page and tell us why you and your family deserve a chance to come together to celebrate the holidays, courtesy of OUMA Rusks.  

“We wanted to find a way to give back to the community in a way that would really touch lives – OUMA has long been a staple in homes across the country and has become a well-loved  tradition for the typical South African family,” says Lonwabo Thinta, Brand Manager. “The winners of this competition can look forward to the joy of a big family Christmas thanks to OUMA Rusks.” Adds Lonwabo.

This competition kicked off on the 1st December 2016 and close on the 11th December 2016. All the winners will be announced thereafter 13th December 2016.


The OUMA legend lives on. The story of OUMA rusks started in 1939 in the small North-Eastern Cape town of Molteno. 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 OUMA bakery runs around the clock to ensure that South Africans will always be able to “Dip ‘n OUMA”.
