At Tropical Sun, we live by the motto: ‘Variety is the spice of life’. Our journey started in 1996 when we began importing a few specialist ingredients and daily essentials for the UK’s thriving ethnic communities.
As word spread, we began receiving requests for specific items from homelands far-afield: Spices, oils, drinks and snacks that helped people stay connected to their cultures. We love that the food helps to bring Families & Communities together.
Loved across Africa, Gari is an incredibly versatile ground food that is both eaten as a snack and used in many traditional dishes. Made from ground, sieved and fried cassava tubers, some of the most popular gari-based dishes include Eba: a stiff dough that is eaten with soups, Kokoro: a sweet, deep-fried snack, and Gari Foto: a filling rice-like dish.
Tropical Sun produces 3 types of gari: white, yellow and Ijebu.
White Gari has a coarse grain.
Yellow Gari has a coarse grain and has been fried with palm oil to achieve the yellow colour.
Ijebu Gari has a fine grain and more sour flavour than White and Yellow Gari.
