Company overview




















DVees is a luxury food & drinks company pioneering West
African flavours through exquisite products. Our products bring you the unique
taste of African spices, condiments and drinks. 


DVees was founded by four sisters; the Aghoghovbia Girls. Growing up with parents who showered us with love, food was one of their expressions. We spent many nights ‘gisting’, laughing and creating beautiful recipes, many times with mum and dad. It is no surprise food became a big part of our lives.


Our love for food is our family heritage. We grew up with a dad who loves good food. We had numerous cooking and baking sessions with him, from making crab soup to homemade cakes. He always came home with food from the latest restaurant he discovered or the staples like suya from the family country club in Lagos; Ikoyi Club. While he encouraged the flare for the western twist, Mum made sure we knew how to throw it down in the kitchen African style. With her occasional and often spontaneously organised cooking lessons, we were well equipped to prepare authentic African dishes.


Our love for food has built a desire to share our rich culture and heritage which celebrates food, our unique burst of flavours and the ingenuity of West African cooking. We are passionate about pioneering West African fine dining and flavours through the creation of unique products.


At DVees we say, “An exceptional culinary experience is better with laughter and great company”.


We hope you enjoy, preferably with family and friends!

Description

DVees Chapman; known as the Sangria of West Africa, is a refreshing citrus flavoured sparkling drink with a dash of blackcurrant and a hint of aromatic spices. The 4 sisters at DVees crafted this drink to recreate childhood memories of days spent at the Ikoyi Club Lagos poolside, eating flamed grilled strips of peppered beef (Suya) and drinking ice-cold refreshing Chapman; Nigeria's own signature drink - supposedly invented by a Nigerian bartender for a British expatriate named Chapman. Available on www.dvees.com, www.notonthehighstreet.com, www.boroughbox.com".
