About Chika Russell and Chika’s


CHIKA’s journey began with a love for exploring global flavours inspired by our founder’s family recipes and sharing this with snack enthusiasts everywhere. Our mission is to capture the colourful essence of Nigerian cuisine, but also build up our communities:


All of the tasty CHIKA treats in our shop are produced here in the UK, but we are also creating jobs in Nigeria. The purpose-built manufacturing facility in Lagos is making an equally tasty range of treats which is currently available in Nigeria.


At CHIKA’s, they’re all about nutrition. This means popping rice, rather than frying it, so our snacks are lighter and lower in calories. Our hand-peeled peanuts bask under the Nigerian sun to absolute perfection. Each blend of spices we craft is carefully curated with love. We want every encounter with CHIKA’s snacks to be an adventure for your taste buds, whether you’re home or away.


But it’s not just about us. At CHIKA’s, we’re more than just a snack brand; we’re a community of flavour-seekers who are giving back. We’re all about empowering our women and girls. The CHIKA’s Girls Rotation Programme helps secure their future for today, tomorrow, and beyond.
