More than herbs and spices

Our utmost priority is the satisfaction of our customers. This commitment drives us to deliver the highest quality spices. We take great pride in being the preferred choice for our customers across the United Kingdom, Europe, and Africa. The story of Marwo is one defined by passion, authenticity, and an unwavering commitment to delivering excellence.

Starting as a businessman and transitioning into a respected spice merchant, Saciid Liibaan’s upbringing was in the coastal city of Kismaayo, situated within the Jubaland region of southern Somalia. As he grew up, he witnessed his father’s skill in crafting jams and various products, which were then sold in their family store. This legacy of refined taste and culinary artistry has been woven into their family lineage for generations. In 2010, Saciid Liibaan astutely recognized a gap in the culinary offerings of the United Kingdom – the absence of spices inspired by the flavors of Africa. This realization prompted him to establish Marwo Foodstuff Ltd in Southall, West London. Swiftly rising to prominence, Marwo Foodstuff emerged as the leading spice brand not only in the UK but also across Europe. Since its inception, the brand has remained steadfast in its commitment to being the preferred choice for food ingredients that authentically capture the essence of African cuisine.

The heart of Marwo’s distinctive spice blends is rooted in time-honored family recipes that have been handed down through generations. Founded in 2014 by Saciid Liibaan, a seasoned expert with over 40 years of experience, Marwo has dedicated a decade to tirelessly refining its products to meet and exceed customer expectations. Saciid Liibaan’s endeavors have taken him across Asia and East Africa, where he sourced a diverse array of spices and herbs. These ingredients, treasured since ancient times for their culinary and medicinal significance, have now found their place in Marwo’s offerings.
