How Yaka is working together for Africa
We make delicious food products while creating sustainable livelihoods for rural households.
We want to create a positive social change in the world. More than 70% of Africa’s population live in rural areas. The majority depend on farming to create an income to support themselves and their families. With the sourcing of local agricultural produce we create life-changing income streams for our farmers and employment for our factory workers.
We work directly with our farmers and staff, which enables us to form a personal relationship with them.
Working with Local Farmers
We work closely with local farmers to bring out the very best ingredients in a pure and authentic way. Yaka is our passion for Africa we want to share with you. We process our products in an artisanal way in our own factory in East Legon, Accra.

How our Chili Pastes are made
YAKA chili pastes are made from locally grown green, yellow and red chilies.
Green (mild), red (medium), yellow (hot)
We adapted an original recipe to fully enhance the rich flavours of the chilies. We remove manually the seeds from our peppers. This results in more flavour without being too spicy.

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 2019 by an international team who have been living and working for more than 20 years on the African continent.
Our products have been successfully introduced in the Ghanaian market in 2020. Due to our success in Ghana we quickly started to export our products to Ivory Coast, Senegal, and the European market as well.
We look forward to introduce the Taste of Africa to the rest of the world!
We are a dynamic and innovative food brand distributed in Africa and Europe. We work with all the natural goodness from the African soil.
Design of our Products
We care a lot about the quality of our products but also the design and quality of our packaging. They must reflect where we stand for: vibrant African culture and quality made in Africa. Therefore we created the Yaka mother figure, whose expertise sources the recipes and whose beauty personifies the rich tastes of Africa. Dressed in traditional fashion she brings the colour and diversity across the range and puts a wink and an infectious smile on everything she touches.
