Partnership with homechoice is a credit to Wonderbag

Wonderbag recently undertook a first-ever initiative in SA to sell their revolutionary, non-electric slow cookers on credit. This proudly South African company partnered with homechoice, the country’s no. 1 home-shopping retailer, at the end of June 2017 to make their eye-catching slow cooker bags available to customers on easy payment terms.  

The Wonderbag has been praised for its many positive social, health, economic and environmental impacts by celebrities and thought leaders such as Jamie Oliver and Jane Goodall. It is a portable, non-electric, heat-retaining cooker which continues to cook food for up to 12 hours without the need for a plug.

Through the secure credit facility provided by homechoice, the Wonderbag and its comprehensive recipe book can be purchased for as little as R35 per month over 16 months or R86 per month over six months. This special offer is available to homechoice customers in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Lesotho and Swaziland.

The partnership brings significant benefits to consumers. Using the Wonderbag reduces energy costs and allows families to cook traditional, affordable and nutritious meals safely and easily. It reduces air pollution, thereby lessening the chance of lung-related diseases. Our statistics show that a Wonderbag user can save up to 80% of the electricity usage normally expended on cooking, simply by bringing their food to a boil on the stove and placing it in a Wonderbag to continue the cooking process. Furthermore, Wonderbags are portable, easy to wash and can accommodate 2L to 10L sized pots.

Fiona James, Managing Director of Wonderbag SA, says: “We are thrilled about partnering with homechoice. By opening our product up to their buyers, we are propelling the Wonderbag into a new space where more people can fully benefit from its many inherent social, economic, environmental and health advantages. This relationship allows consumers in SA and neighbouring countries an affordable, easy to use mechanism to purchase our Wonderbag on credit and start enjoying its benefits today.”

A percentage of the proceeds from every bag sold goes towards the Wonderbag Foundation, a non-profit organization which distributes Wonderbags to rural African communities for families in need.
