Olu Olu has been supplying its market-leading range of African and Speciality foods to the retail, wholesale and foodservice 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.
THE NAME OLU OLU
Olu Olu Plantain Chips
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.
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.
Over 30 years on and many are still unaware that Olu Olu Foods developed the food manufacturing process that positively revolutionised the way millions of Africans around the world eat ‘Pounded Yam’. As founding fathers of Instant “Pounded Yam” flour, Olu Olu is responsible for pioneering and popularising the concept of this flour and introducing it to the world.
