The Jungle Food Company
Michael and his tema blends fresh Irish ingredients with the finest of African spices to create the company’s unique sauces and condiments.
The business was set up in September 2015 and is best known for its award winning Flavour Safari® Sauces, Ireland’s First African Inspired Sauce Range™. Food was an important part of growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, where Michael helped his mother in the small food store that they owned. “Food has always been a passion of mine,” admits Michael. “I was surrounded by herbs, spices and great African produce such as yams, plantain and okra, and always loved cooking and blending different ingredients.”
It’s no surprise then that the underlying premise of Flavour Safari® is a unique blend of herbs and spices that create a brand new taste sensation with an African twist: from mild tomato and herb, to spicy olive and tomato with an extra kick of fiery heat, all Flavour Safari® Sauces are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. The sauces are made using fresh vegetables sourced from local suppliers and are cooked in small batches to ensure premium artisan quality and taste. A key selling point is their versatility since they can be used hot or cold in pastas, pizzas, sandwiches, dips and so much more!
