Every month at Lionesses of Africa, we showcase a particular industry sector where Africa’s women entrepreneurs are making a real impact, through their businesses, their innovation, their products, services and craftsmanship, and their passion for what they do. This month (July), we are turning our attention to the women who are changing the face of the food and drink industry in Africa, and creating new products, building new brands, and launching exciting food/drinks retail concepts in the process.
All this month at Lionesses of Africa, we are featuring some of the leading women pioneers in Africa’s food and drinks industries. Some of the names and brands are well-known, such as Tabitha Karanja of Keroche Breweries, or Monica Musonda of Java Foods, or perhaps Julian Omalla of Delight - others are new to the scene, but all of them are building truly inspirational companies, products, brands and retail concepts that are capturing the imaginations of consumers across the continent, and also the world.
Here are just some of the women Food and Drink entrepreneurs who are inspiring us this month. The stories of these, and many more leading African women food and drinks entrepreneurs like them, will be featured this month. At Lionesses of Africa, we also encourage everyone visiting our website and social media platforms to nominate those African Women food and drink entrepreneurs from around the continent that inspire them, and we will happily profile them during the coming weeks.

Our month-long Focus on African Women Food and Drink entrepreneurs is all about showcasing the best and most inspirational women working and building businesses in these highly competitive industry sectors in Africa, so be part of the process and make a difference to a woman food and drink entrepreneur that inspires you.
