Where to Buy West African Ingredients Online - UK Edition

 One of the frequently asked questions I get is where to find specific Nigerian ingredients. Resisiting the urge to  simply say ‘Google is your friend’,  here are a few companies that deliver Nigerian groceries across mainland UK. The companies featured here are ones that I have personally used and so feel confident recommending. I hope you find it helpful. I will continue to add to this list as I discover and try other services. My plan is also to share similar posts like this for different countries around the world. Stay tuned!
