They say do what you love and you will never work for a day.What started of as a hobby turned out to be a profitable business for 2 young Batswana women Lebogang Mmono and Mpuleng. Their company Just Ginger is a beverage business which produces and supplies organic home-made beverages. Their current business model entails providing the products at various craft markets and festivals.
“My mother taught me how to make gemere some years ago. I used to make it for my family and close friends until a friend, Mpuleng, who has since become my business partner, suggested I develop my interest into something profitable. That was when I decided to turn what was an enjoyable hobby into a business. The story behind the name ‘Just Ginger’ is that we decided to make ginger the constant ingredient in all our products. What makes us unique is that we actually wish to tell a story through our beverages,”explains Lebogang.
Just Ginger is the home of home made Traditional Gemere, Lemonade and Iced Tea. Just Ginger provides all the goodness of ginger in its drinking form. From traditional Gemere to the thirst quenching ginger lemonade. The unique essence still stands out and that is why Botswana fell in love with Just Ginger! Big up ladies, we hope your story inspires other young Batswana, and also you grow to be an international brand.
