Trinidad Carnival 2011. Jamila (L), Malika (R)
When we moved to New York City to attend college, food was the main way we were able to stay connected to home. After spending over 14 years being a part of Corporate America in the Concrete Jungle, we decided that a change of pace was necessary. We packed our bags and headed to South Florida to pursue our dream of starting and owning our own business!
New York City in the 2000s. With our Dad, Marcus
Having lived in New York City, we had relatively easy access to local products from back home. But we kept hearing from friends & family who lived in other places that is was difficult to find products from home. This was our motivation to start Callaloo Box.
Founded in 2017, our subscription box service features seasonings, condiments, pepper (hot) sauces & snacks delivered to your doorstep. Our themed monthly boxes create that nostalgic feeling of “being back home”. No longer will you have to wait for your next trip or for friends and family to bring your favorites for you.
Our goal is to bring a little piece of home right to your door step!
We LOVE Carnival! Malika first played mas at 3 years old and Jamila at 7.
