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 (often spelt Garri) is an incredibly versatile ground food that is eaten as a snack and used as an ingredient in many traditional African dishes. Made from ground, sieved and fried cassava tubers, Gari is ready-to-eat straight from the pack and and is a key ingredient in many African dishes including Eba, Kokoro and Gari Foto.
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.
