How it Happened

We are a biracial family — Nigerian/American. Every time I hosted people from other nationalities to a Nigerian dinner there was always a request for more. I figured making these products shelf stable and available for purchase would save others time and make Nigerian cuisine available anytime to them. In addition, each purchase helps fund our missions to the nations.
