Meet Chigozie Bashua, the founder of The Nut Place, a nut processing company in Nigeria that processes edible nuts into gluten free products for middle and low income earners and helps people that are on a special diet to have access to healthy and affordable food options.
In the interview Chigozie shares about:
- How she came across the idea while grocery shopping during a vacation abroad
- How she launched the business from a corner in her mom’s kitchen
- And how by developing processes and SOP’s for her staff she manages to continue her 9 to 5 job as an engineer in tech while at the same time growing her business
She also talks about the benefit of pursuing a purposeful idea, how she got a practical education in how to process nuts by visiting processing plants in the UK and what her advice for young Nigerians is.
There is a lot of gold in this interview and we hope you’ll enjoy the conversation as much as we did. And now, without further ado, enter Chigozie Bashua.
