Nigeria’s Easyshop Easycook secures seed funds to boost food safety



ImpactAlpha, May 2 – As many as 200,000 people die of food poisoning in Nigeria every year. Easyshop Easycook, based in Lagos, is seeking to improve the food supply chain through online ordering and delivery to professionals, small businesses, schools, hospitals and offices. It manages sourcing and handling of food products from farms to customers. “We realized that friction was causing massive amounts of waste and fraud in our food supply,” founder Saudat Salami said.

  • Undisclosed funding… The EchoVC Pan-Africa Fund did not say how much it invested.
  • Board presence… EchoVC’s Olaide Olusoji-Oke and Fisayo Durojaye will join the Easyshop Easycook board.
