In a recent interview, Ozioma Onwordi, the Founder and Chief Processor of Eden Whole Foods, unveiled the inspiring journey behind her thriving business. The Eden Whole Foods brand, rooted in a passion for providing nourishing, healthy options from the heart of Africa, is on a mission to make wholesome and traceable food accessible to all.
The company’s name, “Eden Whole Foods,” reflects its commitment to offering pure and unadulterated nourishment to consumers. Mrs. Onwordi shared that her inspiration for starting the business came from her role as a mother of four daughters. Concerned about the health and nutrition of her family, she embarked on a quest to provide natural, additive-free food options that prioritize the overall well-being of the mind, body, and soul.
Eden Whole Foods sources its raw materials from a vast network of local farmers, ensuring the preservation of Africa’s rich food heritage. The company’s products are produced with zero additives and preservatives, emphasizing quality and authenticity. Furthermore, Eden Whole Foods is dedicated to exporting its products to the international market, adhering to high standards to compete favorably on global store shelves.
Standing out in the competitive industry, the company’s success is attributed to its dedication to customer service, affordability, and a commitment to excellence. Ozioma Onwordi noted that “God is excellent, and where He dwells (our name) must strive for excellence.”
The name “Eden” itself carries a profound meaning for the business. It symbolizes the idea that God dwells in nature, and Eden Whole Foods aims to replicate this divine presence through their products, which consist solely of natural ingredients grown on African soil.
Since its inception, Eden Whole Foods has evolved from offering a limited range of products for direct consumption to obtaining approvals from NAFDAC and FDA for export. The company’s products are now available on the shelves of supermarkets in Lagos and Ibadan, with plans for expansion to more states in the near future.
One notable success story was shared in the interview, highlighting how a retail customer impressed by the quality of Eden Whole Foods products referred the brand to her organization, a prestigious 5-star hotel in Lagos. This example underscores the power of delivering quality products and branding in the business world.
Looking to the future, Eden Whole Foods aspires to have its products available on the shelves of the top 10 retail chains worldwide within the next five years. Ozioma Onwordi believes that “Eden is universal,” and the brand’s name is a testament to this ambition.
