Ada Osakwe – From investment banker to health food queen

BY MIRIAM MANNAK

She was destined to a bright future at the World Bank, IMF, or perhaps even the African Union. Ada Osakwe has the academic paperwork and a wealth of experience to prove it. The thirty-something-year-old from Lagos wanted more from life, and a promising career in banking and finance wasn’t part of that. So, two years ago, she set up a fresh juice company, Nuli Juice, followed by a chain of proudly Nigerian health food lounges.

Growing up in Lagos with an older brother and younger sister, Ada Osakwe has fond childhood memories. “We were a close-knit family, with both my mother and father being lawyers,” she says. Food always played an important role in her family’s day-to-day life, she recalls. “Some of my favourite memories revolve around my mom preparing interesting dishes. I remember her preparing a pasta dish with cheese and bacon bits. It was simply delicious. I recall standing on a little stool, listening to her explaining to me how to boil the milk and prepare this dish.”
