About Us

I grew up in London as a first-generation northern Nigerian. As a child I was surrounded by my mum Binta’s traditional northern Nigerian food and wanted to share it with others. While I was at university studying for a masters, I entered a business competition for students. I did not have a name or branding at the time, just entered with the ‘Tomato and Red Pepper sauce’ in glass jar with makeshift labels. On the night of the competition people loved the sauces, they sold out and we won by the peoples vote! This took me on a trajectory to start Binta’s Kitchen to share wellness and northern Nigerian foods with the world.’

We are committed to sharing wellness and putting northern Nigerian foods on the map. Our sauces and superfoods are infused with exciting flavours whilst being healthy, vegan and nutritious. 

Since launching we have been interviewed by Vanessa Feltz on BBC radio, featured on Misguided for international women’s day, The Grocer and Stylist magazine.

Through recipes we share wellness and are committed to teaching children about healthy eating choices and ending child food poverty in both the UK and Nigeria.

Social Mission

Our social mission is to end child food poverty worldwide. We partner with grassroots organisations and use a portion of funds to create workshops around healthy eating and developing culinary skills. We founded ‘Foundation feed a mouth’ in northern Nigeria and partnered with Participatory City in Barking to redistribute our products to children who need them the most.

Sustainability

We have made also made a promise that every area of our supply chain meets our sustainability standards. This falls into three main areas:

Infrastructure

We want a business that all our employees and you can be proud of. This means making sure that we stick to our sustainability commitments, that every part of our business is meeting internationally recognised sustainability standards and that we’re working to reduce energy, water and waste along our supply chain.

Ingredients

Our range of sauces, super foods and spices are made with fresh fruit and vegetables sourced directly from farms. We ensure that our partners in Katsina, Nigeria pay a fair living wage to our farmers there. We also incorporate wonky fruit and vegetables from the UK that would otherwise be wasted. At Binta’s Kitchen what matters to us is making the best tasting products with all natural ingredients in the most sustainable way.

Packaging

Our packaging is 100% reusable and take up 95% less space in landfill than rigid packaging. They can also come in handy for storing nuts, seeds, lime slices, hair bands, cables, and anything else you can think of…
