How Can Culture influence the start of your Business?
Since Historic times, coastal Kenya has been a front-runner in the race for export of spices. This is as a result of the years of interculture between the Africans, Arabs and Indians who would use the Indian Ocean as their trading routes. Then when the Europeans came such as Vasco Da Gama, the spice business was exported to the west. Swahili Spice is the proud supplier and exporter of Kenyan Coast spices. Having just started during the corona period, Harold Otieno is building a business not just for export but also for posterity, one that will be passed down generations to another.
A typical evening at the coast must be an indulgence of the Viazi Karai, Samaki wa Kupaka, Biriani among many others, and all these are sumptuously taken alongside hot chilli. For the Mombasa community, a baraza, a walk to the Viazi Joints or restaurants is a normal occurence but not so for the visitors of the Coast. Thats where Swahili Spice comes in. A mix of cultural spices with a business so robust for the people.
