• New, Fresh & Vibrant!

    Welcome to our brand spanking new website! We have been working very hard behind the scenes at Chika’s HQ to make sure we stand out from the crowd…. and what better way to do that than with COLOUR! We already brought the flavours of West Africa with our deliciously scrumptious snacks … we figured it was about time we brought you the colours of West Africa too!

    Chika’s is all about sharing the tastes of West Africa and bringing the best to the West. So today we are very happy to unveil our new, fresh and vibrant website and re-branded packing, that you will shortly be seeing in a local Sainsbury’s and Waitrose near you!

    We would love to hear your thoughts on our new look … please do comment below 🙂

  • Why Are Chika’s Snacks Different?

    If you’re not familiar with the Chika’s brand of premium snacks, you might ask yourself ‘Why should I try them and what’s so different compared to other snacks?’. Well, to try Chika’s authentic West African snacks is to love them. If you’re looking to try something new and willing to go on an adventure in taste and discover the unique flavours of West African snacks, then Chika’s snacks are exactly what you need.

    You can choose from crunchy chickpea crisps, moreish plantain crisps or if you’re nuts about peanuts, you have to try the Chika’s hand toasted peanuts! Not to mention our extremely popular smoked almonds or the black pepper and sea salt cashews.

    Chika’s snacks are extremely flavourful, but at the same time they also offer you a healthy alternative to snacking, as all the Chika’s products are vegan and GMO free. We use only natural ingredients which are then carefully processed in such a way that you don’t lose the deep flavour that is defining of West African snacks.

    If you feel your mouth watering at the idea, then you can find your favourite Chika’s snacks all over the country in stores such as Waitrose, Whole Foods, Selfridges and more. Or if you can’t make up your mind, why not try one of our delicious snack boxes and join Snack for Change to help educate children in Africa?

  • CHIKA’S Features In Prima Magazine’s February 2017 Issue!

    The CHIKA’S story is quickly spreading across the country with recent recognitions from Metro and Pride Magazine (just to name a few), and we are so excited to see our very own Chika Russell feature in the February issue of Prima Magazine, which is out now for you to enjoy.

    In the one-page feature, Chika talks about her journey to success, starting from a regular office job, and how she took inspiration from her Nigerian roots and used them to create the CHIKA’S that we know and love today.

    The section, ‘Women like you’, features real life stories, and Chika’s story is full of passion and inspiration. We are delighted that Prima captured Chika’s motivated personality, and how she used her sheer determination to create a business from scratch, even where others may have doubted her.

    The feature also reflects on Chika’s efforts to make positive changes in Africa, and shines light on the Snack For Change programme, which donates 38% of profit towards sponsoring children’s education in Africa.

    Read more about Chika’s truly inspirational story and how it’s taking the world by storm by reading the full article in Prima Magazine’s February issue. To keep up with our news and find out how you can get involved, sign up to the CHIKA’S newsletter on our website.
