A beautiful Africanfood experience.

our story

Founded by the husband and wife duo, John & Elizabeth Murinye and later joined by their good friend Heberton Diniz, the FOSOA project was created to promote and integrate African food in Europe. FOSOA is a simple acronym for ‘Food So Africa‘.

In a small town in Kildare, one summer afternoon in June 2015. This is where we asked the big question, “Why isn’t African food as popular, as other world cuisines?” That began our quest to find out why such a rich, tasty and incredibly healthy cuisine wasn’t at the heart of anyone other than Africans. Chinese food made it. Indian food is loved — but why not African.

We did our research throughout the remainder of that year and along the way, discovered that other reputable news media like the BBC, Irish Times and CNN, but a few — were asking the same question.

We are partnering with local African restaurants, food producers and your everyday convenience stores to bring you an authentic African food experience that is accessible and close to home. Every day, we are working hard to present to you, ‘A beautiful African food experience.’

Our mission is to inspire the curious foodie with beautiful African food experiences.

Within 2 weeks of launching, FOSOA was featured in the Sunday Times, Metro Eireann and garnered attention and interest from other reputable major media companies like Le Defi Media in Mauritius.
