Nutritional And Delicious West African Cuisine
our products give you a chance to experience authentic West African flavors with a modern approach. Fresh, flavorful, and colorful, packaged in simple and sleek jars. Our line of soups and sauces are unquestionably good. Try it for yourself and see!

The soups are designed to be enjoyed on their own (chilled or hot), a simmer sauce for cooking, a marinade for proteins, a condiment to enhance flavor, and much more. Egunsi Foods’ products are made with all-natural, whole ingredients, sourced locally from farms in upstate New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. Staying closely connected to the brand’s origins, I also work with producers in Ghana and Nigeria to source ingredients like brown-eyed peas for Gbegiri Soup, egusi seed for Egunsi Soup, and more. Through ethical, longstanding purveyor relationships, I’ve ensured that our African farm partners will grow alongside my business. With a flavorful lineup of satisfying, nutritious soups and sauces, nationwide direct-to-consumer shipping, and a roster of popular retailers — from FreshDirect to the Park Slope Food Coop — we are poised to continue growing Egunsi Foods’ mission, sharing my of West African culture, its people, and influence one bowl at a time.

‘Yemisi’s story
My name is Yemisi a Nigerian-born, New England-raised New Yorker, and the founder of Egunsi Foods — a Harlem, New York-based company highlighting West African culture through the region’s most beloved, authentic flavors. Moved to the US from Nigeria as a teenager, attended UMass Amherst, and after graduating, I began a corporate career in retail buying and financial planning in NYC. Throughout my schooling and early career, I found joy while hosting dinner parties for my friends, featuring my favorite West African dishes — which soon turned into pop-up events, corporate and private catering gigs. In 2015, I decided to make my passion project a full-time career and left my job as a financial planner to launch Egunsi Foods. After several years of careful development and market research through personal chef work, and multiple corporate catering contracts, including large-scale companies like Maverick Capital and Droga5, I debuted my first line of refrigerated, packaged West African soups at Whole Foods Market Harlem in 2017.

Egunsi Foods has grown to become a seminal brand in the packaged food space as the only West African packaged soup on the US market, reflecting consumer demand for authentic, African flavors and nutritious ingredients in a convenient, ready-made format. Egunsi Foods is available through our website, Fresh Direct, Whole Foods Market, Amazon, and many more, and has been featured in outlets like Bon Appetit and The New York Times.
