A week before the ECCT’s official launch in Harare, Zimbabwe on 25 October 2012 – Probrands – part of Progroup Zimbabwe, agreed to be the first official sponsor of the ECCT, by providing the 5 cancer patients and the families the ECCT is supporting with monthly food hampers for a period of 6 months. The first food hampers were presented on the night of the launch, by Probrands Representative, Mr. Jahwett Zisengwe (pictured above – far left). You can read about Probrands commitment to the ECCT patients on their website by clicking here.
We also thought we would give you a little bit of history about Probrands. Probrands was established in 2007 as Prostores, down packing basic commodities for NGOs and private organisations wishing to provide foods for their employees during Zimbabwe’s hyperinflationary era. In 2009, it was renamed Probrands and started operating on a commercial scale – it is currently regarded as the fastest growing entity within the group.
Probrands are food specialists in household consumable goods, and have steadily become ‘the brand of choice’ amongst our Zimbabwean consumers! Probrands only work with reliable suppliers, so you can trust them to bring you consistent good quality, affordable goods! Probrands import, down pack, manufacture and distribute product to over 150 leading retail outlets all over Zimbabwe.
Here are a few images & we will be bringing you more as the hampers are delivered to the patients and their families. The hampers contain, amongst other items:
- Two 10kg bags of mealie meal.
- Brown rice.
- Milk creamer.
- Sugar beans.
What a pro brand! Probrands…we thank you.
