Black-owned Business

Yolélé was founded in 2017 by Chef Pierre Thiam and Philip Teverow to create economic opportunity for smallholder farming communities; to support their biodiverse, regenerative, and climate-resilient farming systems; and to share Africa’s ingredients and flavors with the world. Yolélé is introducing the world to fonio, an ancient West African grain. Fonio is a tiny, nutritious, climate-smart ancient grain that has been prized across West Africa for over 5,000 years. It’s light, fluffy and just a bit nutty, and it cooks in just five minutes.
