About Us

Our Owner Story


Hello! My name is Christiane Youmbi. I am the proud owner of KanKan Spice. KanKan Spice is a secret blend of the world-famous Penja peppercorn and spices from the African rainforest, inspired by my grandma’s recipe in Cameroon.

I am a trained Food Technology engineer with more than 10 years of experience in the food industry as a quality control manager for large corporations in Germany and Canada.

When I created it in 2020, my goal was to encapsulate Africa in a bottle. While supermarkets offer spice blends from all over the world, there's a noticeable absence of African flavors

Around 2002 I began to experience problems in my life and body. At that time I was diagnosed with autoimmune disease. Through research I found that proper food consumption can keep your body in good health while other unhealthy foods make you sick. Today I have completely recovered from all illnesses because of making daily healthy food choices for many years. I now have a passion to bring awareness to the importance of eating clean. Adding spices to your food not only enhances the flavor, but also contributes to improved health.

The company Kankan was created to help people live healthy lives by giving them better choices in foods and products. This is my contribution to the world. I care because your health matters!

A customer Story

When I grew up in Cameroon, I used to watch grandma cook. All she needed was a few simple ingredients. And when she added the spices, irresistible aromas of fried meat, velvety sauce, and freshly picked herbs filled her kitchen.

Living in America, I wanted to impress my husband and guests with these deliciously savory dishes. So I tried to replicate her recipes with the spices and ingredients available. But no matter how much seasoning, broth cubes, and salty soy sauce I added, I couldn’t achieve the flavors I grew up with.

Then, while I was pregnant with my first child, higher amounts of sodium in my food were too much for my body. I eliminated everything packed with salt from my diet. Suddenly, food lost its taste… I started getting ill…

I remember preparing the baby shower for my first child. All I felt was insecurity about serving meals that tasted like a sponge, cardboard, or nothing at all. I didn’t have the time to spend in the kitchen or the great cooking skills to make delicious dishes from simple ingredients. At the same time, I couldn’t risk my health or the health of my unborn child.

My concerned aunt had noticed my anxiety about cooking for others and gifted me bags of wild African rainforest spices.

I tried cooking fish with them and the spices enhanced the natural flavors that my guests couldn’t stop complimenting. Then I tried cooking meat dishes, vegetables, and even sauces, with the same result! My husband loved it!

It turns out, that the manufacturer herself had conquered chronic illness by adopting a healthy diet. The spice mix was an authentic recipe inherited from her mother. It had been passed down generations as a natural treatment for digestive problems, inflammation, poor blood circulation, and certain infections. Used in traditional African medicine.

Now that I’m not sweating over the pots to cook mediocre meals, my family has more time to have fun together. We feel strong and energized when we wake up in the morning, and I’m no longer worrying about what I am serving my family.

Kan Kan wild rainforest spice mixes have become my secret to easy and healthy cooking. Just sprinkle, bake, cook or grill, and enjoy!
