Ohhh So Freshhh Global Crowdfunding Campaign

Updated: Jul 5, 2023

Our story,

We are Ohhh So Freshhh, a female-owned holistic company driven by a deep passion for changing lives through nutrition. Founded by Siphumelele Nkosi in her small apartment kitchen, Ohhh So Freshhh emerged from her unwavering dedication to agriculture, hydroponics, nutrition, manufacturing, and her profound desire to contribute to ending hunger in South Africa and Africa as a whole. Siphumelele, a Nutritionist, nutrition consultant, meditation practitioner, creative, yogi, agricultural and hydroponics enthusiast, amateur photographer, and the visionary behind The Freshhh Foundation, aims to provide nutritious food and beverages to underprivileged communities and schools, while also promoting community and school gardening initiatives as a sustainable solution to food insecurity.

Recently, we have moved into our new business premises at Rustic Timber and Garden Centre in Fourways Johannesburg South Africa, with renovations set to commence soon. With great excitement, we have decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign in partnership with Thundafund and Standard Bank. Our objective is to acquire state-of-the-art manufacturing machinery, equipment, and water processing systems that will enable us to provide water with enhanced nutritional value and manufacture a diverse range of nutritious food and beverages.

The funds raised from our crowdfunding campaign will bring about transformative changes, not only for our business but also for the community we wholeheartedly serve. By harnessing the power of cutting-edge machinery and equipment, we will significantly enhance our manufacturing capabilities, enabling us to produce a wider array of nutritious and delicious food and beverage options. This will allow us to cater to the diverse dietary needs and preferences of our customers, clients, underprivileged communities, and schools, empowering them to make healthy choices.

Furthermore, the upgraded machinery will amplify our production capacity, enabling us to meet the ever-growing demand for our products. This means that more individuals, including those in underprivileged communities and schools, will have access to affordable and nutritious meals. By manufacturing our products in-house, we will guarantee their quality, freshness, and adherence to our mission of promoting holistic health and well-being.

The positive impact of our efforts will extend beyond our business operations. The availability of nutritious food and beverages will contribute to improving the overall health and wellness of individuals within the community. By addressing the pressing issue of food insecurity, particularly in underprivileged areas, we can make a profound difference in reducing hunger and malnutrition. This, in turn, will have a ripple effect on the community, as healthier individuals are more likely to thrive, succeed, and actively contribute to the overall development and progress of society.

Moreover, our expanded production capacity will create employment opportunities within the community, providing valuable jobs and sustainable income for local residents. By fostering economic empowerment, we can contribute to the growth, resilience, and prosperity of the community, uplifting individuals and families out of poverty and enabling them to build a better future.

The machinery and equipment acquired through this crowdfunding campaign will not only fortify our business but also empower us to make a genuine and lasting impact on the lives of individuals and the community as a whole. Together, we can construct a healthier, more sustainable future for everyone, transcending boundaries and ensuring that every individual has the opportunity to live a long, healthy, and fulfilling life.
