US$30.00raised of $10,000.00 goal
We are a company that wants to make a difference in the South African community.
We are a small operation of people that are passionate about both flavor and creating needed change.
Skinner's Gourmet Sauces are currently a series of fantastic BBQ sauces that were created with locally - sourced ingredients. With unique flavors such as a smoky sweet Cape Malay curry and a sticky naartjie glaze, it's a beautiful marriage between American and South African flavors.
While sauces might seem like a pretty straightforward idea, our goal is to not only deliver an amazing product, but also create a business model that helps reinforce and build the lives of those who will eventually work with us. In addition, we will also be dedicating a portion of our profits towards initiatives that will also help other South African residents, including scholarships and investing in safer housing for low income families in the long term.
We are only as strong as our weakest. It's important to actively create that change.
Skinner's Gourmet Sauces, due to its regional spin, will not only appeal to local palates, but will be a viable product to export as well. We will be looking to stock local grocery shelves, pitch to dining establishments and cater to overseas prospects that want something that is unique in flavor and style.
Funds raised would go towards securing the proper licensing and a small commercial space, kitchen supplies for creating larger batches, marketing, packaging and other supplies.
Once the project is profitable, we will be able to on board capable souls to help us build this into something amazing while we support them in having a sustainable life too by offering livable wages, performance and loyalty incentives such as tuition assistance and a healthy and safe working environment.
