Our Story

Kwanga.ca, a brand owned and operated by BSE Import-Export, creates Cassava based bread that people eat with meat and vegetable platters. Cassava is consumed across African and Hispanic countries and is known as Kwanga, Chikwangue and Yucca. Our kwanga's are a traditional delicacy that's created in Canada with 100% Cassava and is appreciated by many.

It all started back then when our founder Rachel was a young girl. She was inspired by her mother, who spent much time together cooking Chikwangue; it encouraged her to pursue the tradition. The Chikwangue memories followed her to Canada from Congo. As a passionate Christian, she received a revelation that she will receive her blessing through the production of Cassava. At first, she doubted the idea considering it was a cultural food eaten back home with no popularity in North America. However, she quickly reached out to a few grocery stores, readjusted the production to reflect North American standards and began her 15+ year journey.

Kwanga is a dough that is produced through the fermentation of Cassava roots to remove acidic components. It is best eaten with vegetables, meat, fish platters, even ketchup. It can easily replace your potatoes or rice dietary supplements. So you can look at it as a fat, gluten, nut, cholesterol-free alternative. It is 100% natural, delicious, has a lightly boiled cassava aroma and is loved by many customers for its great taste but also because of its health benefits.
