Credé Natural Oils is a proudly South African manufacturer of a range of market-leading health food products, including the Credé Natural Oils range of cold-pressed and organic oils and the OhMega range of nuts and nut butters.

The company was founded by Jutta and Helfried Credé, a German couple who moved to South Africa in the early 1980’s with their seven children. They settled in Grahamstown and converted a defunct pineapple farm outside of Bathurst into South Africa’s first commercial jojoba plantation. ‘Hamilton Farm’ was from then on, a place of experimentation for Helfried, a trained physicist and serial entrepreneur. It took a patient five years for the Jojoba plants to produce a crop, and ‘Dessert Sun Jojoba Oil’ was the initial offering under the Credé Oils brand.

As the business grew, the family converted an unused guest cottage in their back garden into an oil press and bottling site, and the seven children grew up pressing oil alongside their homework, on weekends and during school holidays. Oil is in the Credé DNA. Steadily the business expanded into other offerings. Sesame, peanut, linseed, and flaxseedwere some of the early oils produced, and these remain cornerstone products for the business to this day. Other additions include the much-loved OhMega brand of nut butters, CBD oils, and most recently our unique Black Seed Skincare range.

Decades after planting their first jojobas as young children, two of the Credé sons now run the family business which operates out of Somerset West with a wonderful and dedicated team. Today, Credé Oils is South Africa’s premier supplier of niche edible oils and the producer of the popular OhMega brand of nut butters.
