Since 2013 we have been building ovens and teaching people to bake. We create space for economic empowerment, skills development and we want people to eat really good bread.

Our Mission

Enabling small-scale artisan bakers to bake in off-the-grid rocket ovens.  To create a collective of artisan bakers who introduce their customers to alternative grains and wholesome bread.


BREADrev is a pioneer in the artisan bread industry, developing off-the-grid rocket ovens and educating South Africans about healthy artisan bread.
