Our Journey - OmoAlata

Becoming a household name for Nigerian meals

Our Story

OmoAlata, founded in 2012, is a Nigerian food service company is focused on producing hygienically processed and packaged local Nigerian soups, spices, and snacks.

Kasope and Tayo started their company when they realized that, in many African stores in the diaspora, the ingredients for cooking Nigerian meals were not produced or packaged in Nigeria.
Nigeria is the most populated black nation in the world and substandard products and packaging was what she was known for. The determination to change that narrative and share Nigeria and its delicious and diverse cuisine with the world was awakened and OmoAlata was birthed.

Kasope left her job as a business analyst with one of the airlines in Nigeria and ventured into entrepreneurship.
Without prior formal training on food packaging, she and her partner set aside personal funds to build a brand and started by packaging pepper mixes, a staple in most Nigerian homes, made from locally sourced produce.

Typical to any startup especially in a developing nation, OmoAlata has had its fair share of ups and downs since inception. However, over the last few years, our perseverance has shone through and OmoAlata has had some wins;

In 2015, OmoAlata won first prize in the She Leads Africa Pitch Competition and was nominated for The Future Awards Prize in Business in the same year.

In 2016, our cofounder, Kasope was listed among Forbes Africa’s 30 Most Promising Young Entrepreneurs.

In 2017, Kasope spoke at a TEDx talk and was also made a brand ambassador for Intel.

Our dream to becoming a household name for Nigerian packaged food has been laborious but fulfilling notwithstanding. We growing organically and have sold over 15,000 packs of our flagship product, the peppermix, till date. The journey has just begun and the possibilities are endless.
