Ouma Rusks are a type of hard, dry biscuit from South Africa. It was introduced in 1939 and has since become a national treat in South Africa. The story of the company is well known in the country.

As described from Wikipedia: "The story of Ouma rusk started more than sixty years ago in the small North eastern Cape town of Molteno. The great depression spurred Ouma Greyvensteyn and her friends to put their heads together to find ways of helping their church mission. Each woman invested half a crown and set out to grow their investment. Ouma Greyvensteyn used her half a crown to bake a batch of rusks, using her trusted family recipe and selling them to farming families in the community. Orders soon started pouring in. Today, Ouma Greyvensteyn is still South Africa's most famous baker. The Ouma bakery is still baking rusks on the farm Friedenheim, on the outskirts of Molteno. No less than 100 full time staff work around the clock in sifts, ensuring that South Africans will always be able to 'Dip'n Ouma’."
