Lovers of beans in all its forms – from moin moin to akara – can all agree on one thing: skinning and pureeing are the most stressful parts of cooking any of your favourite bean-based recipes.
This was what inspired Bunmi Arinbola to create Elewa Foods, a semi-processed food company that focuses on providing skinned and pureed beans. Their tagline reads: "We have gotten the prep work out of the way so you can enjoy your meals sooner!"
Created with the intent of saving Nigerians time and reducing stress, Elewa Foods also provides their customers with simplified takes on popular recipes; as well as healthy meal ideas to promote clean eating.
Speaking with Woman.ng about what inspired her to start her business, Bunmi said:
"I am passionate about finding a human need and filling. Elewa Foods takes away stress from people, we encourage healthy eating and teach fresh takes on traditional meals.
I didn’t choose the business, it chose me; my passion for cooking and food has always been raging. I would say the time for it to manifest had finally come."
