Our Journey

From Inspiration to Innovation

Founded on the 7th of July, 2023, our journey began with a simple yet powerful idea inspired by African dietary traditions and a personal quest for optimal well-being. We recognized the untapped potential of cassava leaves, a nutritional powerhouse often overlooked in modern cuisine. Determined to unleash its benefits, we embarked on a mission to develop cassava leaf-based products that would not only delight taste buds but also promote a heart-healthy lifestyle.
