Basically, African Food Box is a meal kit service that aims to create boxes that takes you on the journey across Africa with recipes that specifically crafted to celebrate the diversity in Africa flavours.

We currently have the Moja box (A5 mailing box), this is our standard single box this box contains one recipe. The Mbili box (A4 mailing box) comes with two recipes of your chooses or two of the same. When you order two recipes we send them in Mbili box unless specified.

Currently, our boxes are designers to serve 4 people (depending on portion size). Some of our customers for one or two and save the rest for later. We also include information on how best to store and reheat the recipes in recipes cards.

African Food Box has a variety of recipes that could potentially contain an allergen. Ingredients are stored separately to minimise cross-contamination. We have a list all of the allergens on our recipe cards, and the website when you are selecting your recipes. We highlight specific ingredients which contain allergens.

We are very mindful of the sustainability of our packaging and always aim to use recycled and biodegradable packaging to reduce our environmental impact. Refer to recipe cards for moreinformation on packaging.

Currently we accept all major debit and credit cards through our payment provider stripe
payment.
