“CUZENA, a British brand which offers accessible authenticity to middle eastern food. Full of colour, full of life and thoroughly modern.

Based in Manchester UK now exists a small team. At the forefront is Shadia Al Hili “The Fava Bean Slayer” who formed the company around a simple recipe from her late fathers homeland. Recognising her British roots and respecting her arabian heritage, CUZENA was born with a mission of accessible authenticity of Middle Eastern food.

A light bulb moment in Shadia’s kitchen on realising her favourite Arabic dish was unavailable 'readymade' in the British market. Ful madamous - a delicious staple dish made with Fava Beans, an exotic blend of aromatic spice, onions, tomatoes, garlic and a touch of chilli heat. Usually enjoyed for breakfast, a perfectly balanced go to for when the body has been depleted of nutrients. Making it the perfect choice for today's modern palate and complete meal needs.

Recognising her British roots and respecting her Arabic heritage, CUZENA was born with a mission of accessible authenticity. Shadia became obsessed with the health properties of the fava bean and all its versatility. She set off on a fearless quest to share the undiscovered flavours of the middle east. Alongside her a 3rd generation fava bean farmer who was on his own journey to resurrect the humble British Bean. The farmer became the first investor in Cuzena.
