About BeeBeeSpices

Our History

BeebeeSpices began life here in London, born out of the COVID-19 challenge. We often visited our favourite Chinese restaurant, they made the best chilli in oil, not counting my mum’s of course. We decided to experiment on our own when the quality of chilli in oil took a nose dive. I was visiting a friend one lovely Saturday and realised rather late in the day that I had nothing to give her as a gift so I decided to wrap up something home-made and all I had were my gorgeous chilli oil. So, I bottled them nicely in one of my collection jars, just to make them look more presentable. I will never forget the look on her face when she opened the package to reveal the cutest and most colourful condiments. She actually thought they were store bought. Straight into the kitchen they went. Not long after, I presented the same package to my colleague, and then a friend. It became apparent that this was no longer a treat for the select few; we needed to share the secret with the world.

Our Vision

Life as a teacher was tough wit few breaks in between. There was a tendency to eat the wrong foods because one never got the time to cook healthy, filling meals. I came up with a "no brainer" idea to batch cook a variety of delicious sauses, pastes and oil to accompany simple food, fill of so much flavour that I was just excited to eat. I would love as many people in my shoes to enjoy good food without the hastle of cooking from scratch and thats what each product is all about.
Folarin’s mum was not too different, she was almost always in the kitchen rustling up something for her four boys and they were always hungry. Both our mums had a penchant for good food and they were wonderful cooks, great mothers and the best entertainers. Following the passing of both them, to cancer, we realised the importance of eating right and so we endeavour to provide heathier alternatives to our condiments and oils.

I doubt that we would have embarked on this journey if we had known the challenges. I am glad that we took the plunge. We are grateful for our friends who have laughed with us, cried with us yet remained with us. To our mums, thanks for the experience. To our family, thank you for making the journey possible. And to the world, thank you for walking with us..

We often had family come around because my mum loved to entertain. I recall mum attending cookery classes as an adult. As the older female sibling in a traditional home, this meant that I was always mums assistant. It was my duty to clean and prep the ingredients she would be using for the dish and boy did she make lots of dishes. Little did I know that these experiences would shape my life. I grew to appreciate and love good food.
Much love,

Folarin, Danielle and Beni
