Makola.com is an African startup company and online market with the goal of being a one-stop shopping destination for African groceries and food products. Similar to many African international students across American Universities, we found it very difficult to find basic African groceries both in local stores and online. Through research, we discovered that the lack of African markets online is due to the fact that most of the local African markets are run by our mothers, aunts, and first generation immigrants who may not be as tech savvy as the current generation. Makola.com seeks to bridge that gap and divide.
We seek to combine our collective talents and harness the power of technology to produce a viable African business that ultimately makes an impact on the African continent as a whole. Makola.com’s number one priority is serving our customers in having the best experience while shopping for African groceries online. We hope to be able to bring a taste of Africa and African food products to your doorsteps. As such, we work with many partners, both local African markets and producers in Africa to build an online market for Africa. We believe this will help grow African businesses, create jobs and enhance economic conditions within the African Diaspora and African continent.
Whether you are looking for piece of home, learn a new African recipe, or just buy African food products to cook that wonderful dish your mother used to make for you in Africa, Makola.com is here to serve you and provide you an easy access to African groceries with a simple process of click-n-ship.
