Ade was born in Nigeria in the late 60s. He attended secondary school in Nigeria and moved to England after completing his 'A' levels.
With his wife, Gbemisola, they reached a decision to open a business in the food industry and with determination and vigour they started.

They started the business on a small scale from a garage and through sturdy progress, overcoming obstacles such as raising capital, sourcing suppliers, they were able to secure a small warehouse in Charlton in 2005.

Two years later the first Cash & Carry was opened at Eastmoor Street, specializing in foods and drinks to the African/Caribbean community in the Royal Borough of Greenwich and others. Their steady growth has been as a result of their dedication and commitment as a team to its customers.

From a humble beginning in their small garage, Michael opened a huge complex today on a total floor area of 20,000 square feet. He currently employs 50 people and and he is set to employ 200 more people.
