WHAT WE’RE ABOUT

We believe that the finest quality foods and goods come from all around the world, and Africa is rich in some of the highest quality agricultural products. Our goal is to get some of Africa’s best offerings out into the rest of the world, while humanely supporting rural communities. If you have a business that’s looking for something we’re selling, be sure to reach out!

WHERE WE’RE LOCATED

By placing our headquarters in California, we are positioned to better serve the Western Hemisphere. We understand that for westerners doing business with African companies, it is generally approached with hesitation and reservation. We aim to minimize that sentiment and provide nothing but an exceptional experience.

HEADQUARTERS: Irvine, California. USA

OPERATIONS: Abuja, Nigeria

Operationally, we are based out of Nigeria, providing access to Northern Nigerian products. While at this time the majority of our suppliers are from Nigeria, we are constantly searching for new farmers / growers throughout Africa who are growing the best of the best. (Be on the lookout for Senegalese products soon. They’ve got some exciting stuff happening in their farming communities, and we’re just getting started.)

As known as Moringa oleifera, it is commonly used as ingredients in traditional herbal medicines. The leaves are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals. This plant is cultivated in tropical and subtropical areas where its young seed pods and leaves are used locally as vegetables in Northern parts of Nigeria.
