?OMG! We’ve launched a new flavoured-filled business!?
Introducing our new kick-ass range of 16 healthy spices and seasonings. – Asijiki Brands.
Asijiki means “No Turning Back” in isiXhosa.
Asijiki Brands was inspired by Sleekgeek’s sister isiXhosa community, Sleekgeek Team Asijiki, which has exploded past Sleekgeek in size with over 177,000 members.
The community had a desire to flavour their food in a “clean” and healthy way.
At Sleekgeek we strongly believe that food should taste GOOD and you should enjoy what you eat.
Your health and fitness efforts should make your life BETTER rather than worse.
After all, there’s more to life than dieting and working out. That’s not your destiny or life purpose.
It’s a means to an end.
With Asijiki Brands, we’d like to help you reach that end more easily by helping you to make food taste incredible in an effortless and healthy way.
So we got together with Sion (Sisi) Venter, who has a wealth of career experience in the spice business, and Team Asijiki leader, Carol Gajana. Together we made some magic happen!
Our range was born!
- November 2018 we created a product and pioneered it with agents creating employment for some of our community members.
- Mid-June 2019 we were blessed to be invited by Dischem to go on trial in 25 Dischem stores across the Western and Eastern Cape.
- We also launched in a few Spars in KZN.
- August 2019 we have listed our stock in our online store for people who cannot get it in-store or via agent yet.
We are delighted with the loving reception from the community and glowing reviews so far.
The feedback about the quality, taste and affordability has been incredibly positive so far.
In a short space of time, we have moved over 6,000 units through Dis-Chem alone and are considering expansion to Gauteng and KZN when we have the funds for stock. Help us get there by supporting us, please!
Seeing our products on the shelf has been very exciting for us!
Try us! You WILL love us!
Besides the obvious point of supporting Sleekgeek here are some reasons to choose us!
If you have to buy spice why not try us? The more we sell in-store the closer we get to being at eye level. (The holy grail in retail)
But here are some more great reasons:
Clean, healthy, wholesome ingredients. Non-irradiated, no added MSG, no added sugar, Banting, Paleo and ANY lifestyle -friendly.
For example, our Meat Seasoning is just Salt, Coriander, Cloves, Nutmeg, Mustard, Black Pepper, Garlic, and Onion. That’s it.
Plus, we’ve got some really cool spice blends going, like “Walkie Talkie” (for traditional isiXhosa chicken feet and head dishes – but goes fantastically with any kind of normal chicken dish too) containing: Cumin, Onion, Parsley, Salt, Black pepper, Paprika, Turmeric, Garlic, Paprika extract, Capsicum extract.
F#@%ing good value for money. We want you to be generous with your seasonings for maximum flavour and health. No need to pinch and use with caution.
For example, This large 200g – 460g bags go for R30-R40 per bag. Most shaker bottles of spices that you buy in-store are only 50g – 100g for a similar price.
This is really close to our ❤️ heart with what we do at Sleekgeek in helping people live a better, healthier life.
We have also worked hard to create a truly SA inspired product with unique lines such as our Chakalaka!
