MEET THE FOUNDER
“My name is Chibuikem Osuchukwu, and I am the founder and Managing Director of GuDee. My journey from the aerospace industry to GuDee has been characterised by my unyielding passion for giving back to the community”
When I left Nigeria on the 18th of September 2006 to pursue my dreams of studying aerospace engineering in the UK, I never could have imagined how deeply rooted my passion for my homeland would become.
As I immersed myself in the world of aerospace, I longed to find a way to make a difference back home. People find it fascinating how I pivoted from aerospace engineering to founding GuDee. But my passion for community uplift has always guided me.
“I always dreamed of sharing the unique flavours of my West African heritage with the rest of the world”
I believed that by introducing West African cuisine to a global audience, people would be able to experience a whole new world of flavours, spices, and aromas.
“As I delved into the world of West African cuisine, I realised there are nutritious powerhouses, or as I like to call them, SuperFoods. ”
This fuelled my commitment to bring these SuperFoods to the global stage, providing more opportunities for me to give back to my community. And as a result, I said good bye to Aerospace and GuDee was born, derived from the words 'Good' and 'Delicious.
Sourcing our products ethically and collaborating exclusively with small local farmers ensures the sustainability and traceability of our goods
By supporting these farmers, we not only give back to the community but we also uplift countless lives. JOIN THE GuDeeLicious
