More About Olu Olu Foods.
Many Are Unaware That Olu Olu® Foods Were One Of The First, If Not The First African Food Brand To Be Distributed In The UK And Most Of Europe.
Olu Olu® has been supplying its market-leading range of African and Speciality foods to the retail, wholesale and food service sectors for over 30 years. The company began in Nigeria, in the late 1970’s as Olu Olu Wineries and has since evolved into a specialist African and exotic health foods brand, providing a wide array of tropical and rare health foods and drinks to the western market.
Presenting consumers with the finest produce from Africa and the tropics, the Olu Olu® brand has insured quality for at least two generations of satisfied consumers. From its modest origins, the family-owned business now hosts a wide range of products ranging from dry foods and spices, to pantry items, packaged snacks and beverages, all representing the culinary prowess of the African, Asian, Caribbean and South American continents
Why The Name Olu Olu?
The name Olu Olu® is derived from both the company founders’ names. Husband and wife duo, Mr Olumuyiwa Aiyegbusi and Mrs Oluyemisi Aiyegbusi, started the company in Nigeria, and later moved to the UK to establish a contemporary African food brand that could capitalise on the prospective opportunities that the emerging Western markets had to offer the African diaspora. Catchy and memorable, Olu Olu® is now a name synonymous with premium quality African foods.
More About Afrokanist Event!
Afrokanist has put together an event centred around the self; and managing mental health, particularly within the black community. This free event targets people from varying backgrounds within the community. Does your faith mean everything to you? Do you prefer to admire nature and explore your spirituality? Are you unsure about your existence and about whether or not a God exists? This event (which is free by the way) provides both a safe space for our readers and an opportunity to explore taboo topics within the black existence at the same time! We have mental health professionals, religious leaders and traditional African spiritualists on a panel, debating the issue of mental health and how it is treated in the community (Don’t worry, we have a mediator too 📷).
Of course, being a magazine launch, the 4th issue of Afrokanist will also be available for first-time purchase! Like the event, this issue pulls all the punches to ensure that the reader experience is comfortable. There are articles from professionals and religious experts that explain how faith and a healthy mind can co-exist. There are texts and quotes for the religious to find comfort in, and most importantly, we have made sure that the issue reflects the measures you can try yourself to get better. WE ARE FOCUSED ON YOU!
