Presenting a fusion of African and European cuisine through dine-in food, takeout service, spices, and meal plans, Mola Foods has been certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). The certification is accepted by thousands of corporations representing America’s most prestigious brands in addition to many states, cities and government entities.
“I am so excited to now be able to access a vast network of support with new growth opportunities and increased visibility in corporate and government supply chains, education and development programs,” said Mola Foods Founder LaFortune Jeannette Djabea.
“I’m proud of this certification and look forward to continuing to grow my brand.”

The WBENC standard of certification is a meticulous process that includes an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. With the inclusion of women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their respective commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
“As both an African and a woman, I’m proud of this certification and look forward to continuing to grow my brand,” said Djabea, a native of Cameroon, a central African country located on the Gulf of Guinea.
Founding Mola Foods in 2016, Djabea’s deeper mission is “to open people’s hearts to African culture.” “I love being here in America, and I love where I come from,” she said. “Mola Foods is my way of inviting Americans to learn more about my culture. This invitation starts with African cuisine and flavors.”
Located at 9 Simon St., Nashua, Mola Foods is a vibrantly colored space with seating for 40+ and features dine-in, takeout service, meal plans, and digital storefront with many products also available at area retail outlets.
