8. Paradise Sun Snacks Founder Jedu Armar on Sun Cooking, Why He Returned to Ghana, and His Hopes for Africa’s Future

In this episode of Dear Diaspora, I had a wonderful conversation with Jedu Armar, founder of Paradise Sun Snacks. Paradise Sun Snacks are naturally lit snacks, cooked using just the energy of direct sunlight. How dope is that?

Jedu is a proud British-Ghanaian, and was inspired to start Paradise Sun Snacks after having several fascinating conversations with his grandfather about sun cooking, life, and Africa’s bountiful natural resources. ⁠

During the episode, we chat about his experience growing up in London, coming to the US for college, and why he decided to return to Ghana after graduating. We also discussed what doing business in Ghana is like, and the hoops he had to jump through to get FDA approved. 

Tune in for more of our conversation!

Quote: “I want to be a celebration of this continent. I want to celebrate what we have. I want to give the world a true taste of Africa in an incredibly eco-friendly and sustainable way.” – Jedu Armar
