AUTHENTICITY & TRANSPARENCY
BEING A GREAT EMPLOYER
LOOKING AFTER THE ENVIRONMENT
Abi and Michael have been married for over 21 years and have been blessed with 2 boys. They both grew up in West African households, specifically Nigeria, with the privilege of having had family cooking traditions passed down from grandma and mum. This led to an archive of incredible and joyful memories, most of which have been formed from the passion of cooking delicious variations of traditional foods within the family.
Over the years, the kitchen has been our favourite place in the house; where we have the freedom and creativity of combining multi-cultural traditions to create incredible dishes that we share with extended family and friends through numerous get-togethers and barbecues. We also realised – from the same friends and family – that although many people love eating delicious home-cooked meals, many didn’t like the hassle involved in meal preparation nor the time it takes to cook.
For us, hours in the kitchen came to us naturally and is our passion, love and joy. Our scrumptious meals are filled with homeliness, warmth and surprise, creating a spark and bringing people together.
We enjoy travelling and we love meals from different cultures. One of our signature dishes was born in 2007 when Michael discovered an incredible blend of Jamaican Jerk Sauce and African spices with Nigerian smoky Jollof rice. So, we started the journey of creating a fusion of African meals and flavours with meals from other cultures.
We had the big idea of making African ingredients and meals mainstream in an innovative way. Whilst there are many independent providers of African cuisine through pop up shops and restaurants, they are still hugely underrepresented in the mainstream market. With much research and feedback.
Fast forward to 2018, we launched Yumchop, providing hassle-free, frozen ready meal cuisines from around the world with an African twist, bringing ease, convenience, and satisfaction to serving food.
With our first break for food service at Imperial College University London and NHS Hospitals through our Automatic Vending Machines, we are now looking at bringing our meals to your homes, on your dinner table with the ambition that Yumchop Foods will be a national and global brand (a household name!!).
