“The Zuleeats mission statement is my personal philosophy – to connect with others through food. In Ghana, eating is not just a function for survival, it’s how we express ourselves and connect with our community. Many of our traditions and celebrations are centred around food. It’s something that we experience and share with those around us. This value that is channeled through every meal that is created at Zuleeats.
My vision is to be the leading name in West African food providing quality and convenient recipes to anyone who enjoys good food regardless of ethnicity and dietary restriction.”
