More about Bukyia
Bukyia (meaning stove) was created to empower local food vendors (popularly known as Joints in Ghana, Kibandas in Kenya or Buka in Nigeria) to deliver Africa’s authentic and budget-friendly meals online and expand to new neighborhoods through cloud kitchens.
Bukyia understands the technology literacy gap in the space and have developed a practical way that allows the so called ‘informal vendors’ which consist of 95% women to be included in the digital economy.
