HAVING THE JOY OF BEING BORN INTO THE NIGERIAN CULTURE,
I WANTED TO SHARE THAT JOY WITH WORLD.
ELIZABETH UWAIFO, FOUNDER
Chilli Chop Co was birthed out of a love and passion for the rich food and culture of West Africa. Founded in 2016, Chilli Chop Co has proven to be the home of authentic West African sauces for “foodies” both on the continent and in Diaspora.
The task of preparing an amazing West African dish (and doing it justice), can often seem time-consuming and daunting in nature for some. Chilli Chop Co has dispelled this notion by simplifying the process and making it easy for anyone to whip up an amazing African dish!
The secret lies in the creation of our three delicious staple sauces:
Jollof Sauce, Sweet & Spicy Chutney and Three Chilli Sauce.
Our sauces are championing as modern day pioneers in introducing the world to Nigeria's contemporary flavoursome food culture.
As well as being a contributor to the continued exposure of African cuisine in the mainstream, Chilli Chop Co is also passionate about health and nutrition. We ensure that all of our products are tasty - minus the junk! Using only quality and naturally sourced ingredients, Chilli Chop Co sauces are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
Born and raised in Nigeria, West Africa, Elizabeth Uwaifo relocated to the United Kingdom at age 11. Thus she grew up with a love of food that both reminded her of ‘back home’, as well as being able to explore new flavours and to put a modern twist on recreating her favourite dishes. It is her love of food, mixed with her desire to help those who have wanted to recreate that Nigerian flavour, which proved to be the key deciding factors in officially founding Chilli Chop Co in 2016.
Elizabeth recalls fond food memories of growing up in Nigeria, listing Agege Bread, Yam & Egg with Pepper Sauce and of course, Nigeria's beloved Jollof Rice as firm favourites. Street foods such as Suya and Asun, have also had a special place in her heart. Having had the joy of growing up in such a vibrant and rich culture, it is this joy and passion that serves as the main ingredient behind Chilli Chop Co. Launching this brand is Elizabeth’s way of sharing her recipe of joy with the world!
