Brief History of Yaka

We want to share the rich flavours of Africa with the world while creating local jobs along the value chain of local agriculture products. Yaka was created in January 2019 by an international team of 1 Ghanaian, 2 French and 2 Belgians, who have been living and working for more than 20 years on the African continent. The first products have been successfully introduced in the Ghanaian market in April 2020. Due to the success in Accra we quickly started to export our products to Abidjan, Lome and Cotonou. Since June 2021 we export our artisanal quality products to Europe. We look forward to serve our artisanal products to the rest of the world
