LOOKING AFTER THE ENVIRONMENT
From a young age, wasting food has been a CARDINAL SIN at home. Mother ensured that all our meals were cooked, portioned and stored in the freezer (when there was sufficient electricity) to have just enough to avoid food waste.
Our packaging is 100% paper based, recyclable and biodegradable. All of our food ranges reflect our commitment to environmental sustainability, minimising our carbon footprint.
We like to be at the cutting edge of the sector and using technology to make life easier for customers exemplifying the use of our Kiosk to deliver meals hot to customers in a very timely fashion.
This innovate and forward thinking culture earned us a 4 year APPROVED SUPPLIERS STATUS with The University Catering Organisation (TUCO) to directly supply UK Universities and Local Authorities.

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 2016 when 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.
As an existing supplier to Universities, the likes of 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.
We want to share our passion and love for food through our flavoursome, authentic and delicious meal range because we believe that eating should give you a sense of intense satisfaction, joy and comfort! Sharing our meals at the family table or with friends, creating a community aura that is warm and filled with popping flavours.
