Ogechi Okelu is re-introducing traditional Nigerian snacks to the city


Ogechi Okelu is a self acclaimed foodie and this led her from a career in pharmacy to starting Kozee, a company that specializes in making indigenous Nigerian snacks more appealing than ever.

From her small scale food factory Ogechi is repacking local snacks in hygienic ways.

This is a great way of showcasing and reminding us of our culture. According to Ogechi, Nigeria has a wide variety of healthy and creative snacks and meals which have been lost over time and are not in high demand among the urban and elite groups. Her goal is to bring back our snacks in healthier forms.


The first product from her company is the very famous kulikuli. Kulikuli is an indigenous snack made from groundnut paste that is quite popular in the northern part of Nigeria.

Although Kozee foods deliver only in Abuja Ogechi is looking forward to supplying in major cities in Nigeria and hopefully abroad in the nearest future.
