A Story of Love and Heritage

FAIDA was created right here in the USA. But the story begins before that in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

There, our Founder, Christian Lola, discovered the rich and diverse flavors of his mother’s cooking. But in the DRC, the kitchen wasn’t just a place for daring tastes and recipes. It was a place for joy, laughter, and inspiration.

FAIDA brings you the best of both worlds: Delicious flavors and blissful moments — right in your own kitchen.
