About Us

 
 

Real and delicious, African comfort food handmade made with love.

 

Africa is a continent with food traditions as vast and varied as the cultures.  At Zamtan African Foods we specialize in traditionally prepared foods from southern and East Africa. Everything is handmade from scratch, using generations-old recipes, decades of experience & with a love for what we do & and who we do it for.

We grew up eating home cooked traditional, slow and layered cooking made with the love of our mother. In the past, only beloved family and best friends could experience our delicious, healthy, high-quality food by coming over to our house for dinner. Today, we consider our customers as part of our extended family, which is why we continue to personally make each item by hand and from scratch.

At Zamtan African Foods we are passionate about real and delicious, African comfort food made with love.

ABOUT THE FOUNDERS

 

A Tanzanian man meets a Zambian woman at The University of Zambia. They fall in love, get married and eventually move to Canada. They study, work, eat and enjoy life in the True North, West coast, Southern Ontario and Prairie lands of Canada.  Along the way they raised their 4 children and teach them about the beautiful hybrid of African food heritage, nutrition and history.
