Hello! Welcome to our website! I’m Ndah (like Linda; just without the ‘L’😊) and together with my husband, Valentine, we run Etinde House Company an artisan outfit which I founded in September of 2018. Our only aim, to bring the revered family chilli oil recipe and more to the market to in order to deliver the very best in terms of heat, flavour & versatility.
It all began in our home kitchen in Northampton in 2018. We began sourcing chillies from Cameroon to help provide sustainable livelihoods for small scale farmers and also sourced ingredients from suppliers around the UK with sustainably farmed products. Working to develop and refine our recipes
to make sure they were perfect for the UK market was a gruelling but fulfilling process. With recipe development and branding done, we started to sell in food festivals, Christmas markets and even got listed with a number of local independent shops. This progress culminated in a listing with TheVeganKind Supermarket and even more independents.
With the success of our chilli oils, came the need to expand our product range and so we introduced hot sauces, spice rubs, coconut snacks, chilli pastes, jams and chutneys. However much we grow, we plan to keep our customer at the centre of what we do. With each bottle of chilli oil or hot sauce, pack of Spice rub or Coconut street snack, our customers share in our history, our story, our legacy. We also remain passionate to giving back by sourcing produce wherever possible from West Africa & Cameroon in particular & ensuring a portion of
our proceeds go to help raise prostate cancer awareness amongst disadvantaged men in Cameroon.
In 1999, Dr Simon Ndi Tatani during retirement in his beloved Etinde House, created the recipe for our flagship product, the Habenero Chilli Oil. Almost 20 years on, this recipe remains in the family and is loved by all who try it. Our chilli oils bring a uniquely delicious taste and flavour to everything they garnish. Dr Tatani was our father and grand-father. Etinde House Company, is a part of his legacy, a small way to honour his memory.
GIVING BACK IN HONOUR OF LEGACY
To give back and bring you undiluted provenance, we part source sustainably farmed ingredients from Cameroon. Also with each purchase, you empower small-scale farmers to attain secure and sustainable livelihoods and raise prostate cancer awareness amongst men in disadvantaged parts of Cameroon.
