We started in 2017, from Shola's family kitchen. It's been a rollercoaster of experience, from selling spices to becoming the No.1 online West African & East Asian catering company. We've grown into a small, but mighty team since then, find out more below.
I sold my mums famous pies in school, I wanted to make it global. I was so young then, my mum wanted more for me; encouraged me to focus on higher education. So I did just that, till 2015 that is. I started searching for that thing! I decided I'd try everything I was ever interested in, from fashion, sales, to sewing, tried it all. With each one, my commitment went out the window pretty fast. A few years later, it clicked! I can see myself forever loving food & I was a really good cook. I posted a few dishes on socials, my friends loved it. #inviteme #buythechickenfirst. Little did I know the dream I once had at 14, is the very thing I'd be doing now.
Afrisian was founded in London (2017) with the vision of making our community's everyday life that bit easier. We want to be the common thread between families, friends & their memories. Since we can't be everyone's aunt, what better way than providing beautifully plated meals. Soon realised how many people today have limited time for cooking and the need for traditional meals that are quick and easy. In March 2018, we launched a new service, cook the food for you, on the days you don’t have time to. We're proud of our West African culture. We want customers to effortlessly enjoy authentic flavours & traditional techniques.
More than just food
For us, Afrisian is much more than a service provider; it is a way of keeping culture alive, endless memories, a community, and much more. We value togetherness, breaking the status quo, all while living our best lives.
