One of the biggest challenges faced by businesswoman and entrepreneur LaFortune Jeannette Djabea when she first opened Mola Foods in 2016 in Nashua was that many people did not seem interested in African cuisine. Change, however, may be in the proverbial air, as her recent Taste of Africa events appear to resonate with people of all ages.
When people visit Mola Foods in Nashua, they are immediately greeted with bright colors and a warm smile by Founder and Owner LaFortune Jeannette Djabea, who “loves to share” African cuisine and culture. “Africa is so diverse, rich, and vibrant,” she said. “Mola Foods is my invitation into my world.” Her world began in Cameroon, a central African country on the Gulf of Guinea, a place she described as “a melting pot of all other cultures from Africa. “Our cuisine is just as versatile,” she said.
