Marie’s Little Jar is a symbol of its creator, ‘Marie’ Carine Ottou, getting back to her roots. After years of living in Europe, working in corporate IT and artificially straightening her hair she decided enough was enough. The hair was cut and she turned her attention to creating a food brand inspired by the vibrancy and flavour of her native West Africa.
For Marie, growing up in Cameroon meant being constantly surrounded by the sights, sounds, and smells of wonderful food. She spent weekends at markets finding fresh local produce which was all naturally grown. Just as she rejected hair-straightening chemicals, so too does she reject anything artificial in her products.
Marie’s Little Jar is about getting to the heart and soul of food, and realising that great, truly unique flavour is available, in its simplest form, straight from nature. It is about understanding that making cooking simpler doesn’t need to mean processed or fake. It is about realising that healthy eating never means compromising on flavour.
The sauces are made of 100% natural ingredients, and easy to use – your healthy cupboard secrets which add wow-factor to your food with minimal effort. With Marie’s Little Jar sauces, Marie wants to help bring you the tastes of Africa. No tricks, no fuss, just some little jars of goodness which will make you happy, healthy, and well-fed.
