In recent times, Nigerians have embraced meal ordering as a safe and convenient option to crowded restaurants. Owing to this and the need to promote local restaurants, Jumia introduced its Food Festival campaign in 2020 and has since used it to encourage more consumers to order their favourite dishes online. The online food festival is even bigger this year, with more restaurants partnering to offer exciting deals and discounts. 

For two years, Jumia’s Food Festival campaign has provided restaurants with a platform to expand their reach while offering consumers access to tasty meals at the best prices. The options are endless, from breakfast to brunch and desserts if you crave convenience and affordability.

To kick off the mouth-watering experience, here are five categories you might want to explore: 

1. Immerse yourself in the adventure of finger-licking local dishes

Are you looking for the best local cuisines, or do you miss the warmth of mama’s village recipes? Then visit Chopnownow. With a 20% discount on the entire menu, you can get a range of local delicacies like amala and ewedu soup, akara, moi moi, ofada rice, and sauce, to mention a few, for a steal.

3. Indulge your sweet tooth cravings with a “buy 1 get 1 free” offer

Imagine taking a scoop of your favourite ice cream on a sunny day and how it awakens a hormone of happiness that helps reduce stress levels in the body.
