“African food culture is the expression of the linkages between people and foods that draw influences from the African continent.” – Dine Diaspora
Dine Diaspora is an agency that highlights the influence of African food culture around the world. The curators work with culinary creatives and brands to drive value in new and existing markets.
In 2014, Maame Boakye, Nana Ama Afari-Dwamena and Nina Oduro had a desire to connect people and brands to the global influence of African Food Culture. Since then, they’ve been offering culturally immersive culinary experiences and services focused on foods of the African Diaspora through Event Design and Production, Influencer Engagement, Branding, Marketing, Advertising, and Food Business Resources.
Over the past year, Dine Diaspora has connected over 600 people to African food culture through events, partnerships, and work opportunities. Through events, like the “Chop Bar Festival” and “Dish and Sip” speaker series, Dine Diaspora has featured dynamic African diaspora influencers and connected them to food and travel enthusiasts.
