For the uninitiated, yassa is a popular Senegalese chicken dish that's made with caramelized onions, lime juice, and chilis. Yolélé brings fun to the table in the form of fonio, a West African grain known for its nutty, earthy flavor. It's ready to eat in just 5 minutes, and makes a light and fluffy pilaf that goes great with roasted meats or grilled veggies.

Yolélé works with smallholder farmers in West Africa that employ regenerative farming practices. Together, they bring Africa's vibrant flavors, nourishing cuisine, and delicious ingredients to the world.

How it does good

Changing conditions for smallholder farmers

Most people in West Africa rely on farming to live, but don't have access to markets or economic security. Many young people looking for job opportunities leave for overcrowded cities and struggle to find work, or risk their lives trying to get to Europe. That's why Yolélé crafts foods and snacks that provide economic opportunity for smallholder farmers. Buying West Africa's oldest cereal grain can help alleviate extreme poverty, unlock opportunities, and transform communities in West Africa.
