Founded by Ian Cohan-Shapiro, a Google employee and a Fulbright Scholar and Tosin Osibodu, formerly of AppNexus and Wayfair.com, Nigerianfoods.com is a service that delivers the largest selection of Nigerian ingredients to all 50 US States.
According to Tosin, Nigerianfoods.com guarantees delivery of the largest selection of Nigerian ingredients to all 50 US states and thereby save buyers the trip to the African store so they can spend more time cooking. The platform also aims to save users the stress of looking for ingredients they want.
Now self-funded from their life savings and some friends and family, Ian says the firm has not seen much in the way of competition as some other sites are focused on serving broader African tastes but Nigerianfoods.com is dedicated to building a site devoted to Nigerian foods. The firm plans to offer more Nigerian content and foster a community that preserves and evangelizes Nigerian food abroad.
