The Story of Funkee Foods
One day, I came home from work and popped the telly on, and there was Jamie Oliver, doing what he does best on TV. He had been having a chat with a local farmer who mentioned he had heaps of perfectly usable fruits and vegetables that were going to waste due to their appearance.
It seemed that funny / funkee-looking produce was being rejected by the supermarkets solely based on their appearance and this is what sparked my idea!
I thought to myself, what if I take the 'funkee' looking fruits and vegetables and mix them with the regular-looking ones and make a tasty hot sauce?
So I did!
This programme came right on time as during that period, my GP had recently advised me to make healthier choices. After scouring the supermarkets to find tasty, suitable hot sauces and not being able to find any, I decided to make my own from funny-looking fruits and vegetables.
I am very proud of the fact that we have been able to produce a sauce that contains all-natural preservatives, no colouring, and an array of vitamins!
Funkee Foods' sauces & chili oils are known for their very bold flavours, which are heavily inspired by our West African heritage. One of our key ingredients is cloves which have been used for hundreds of years and have been known for their health benefits.
We really hope that you enjoy tasting our products as much as we love making them.
