Iyin here - the founder of Luji's Chocolate. 

If you're like me, you love a sweet little pick me up to brighten up your day. I was shocked to find out almost none of my favorite childhood snacks were actually made in or by Africans.

After learning that over 70% of cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate, is produced in West Africa, I knew we had all the requirements to produce the best premium chocolate locally. 

Hailing from one of the largest cocoa producing towns in Nigeria, Ile Oluji, and motivated by the desire to provide local farmers access to international markets, Luji's Chocolate was born. Our mission at Luji's Chocolate is to create wealth for Nigeria and the cocoa sourcing communities, and bring the pure joy of 'Made in West Africa' to chocolate lovers around the world.

Luji's Chocolate launched on Kickstarter, and the response was amazing. Learn more:
