A NEW international food store looks set to open in Workington with the aim of bringing 'Afro-Caribbean culture to your doorstep'.

The new shop is situated on Murray Road, based in the former K2 unit on the street which has now been vacant for some time.

It is now displaying signs for a new Afro-Caribbean food store called Mama Ibeji.

The store is set to bring an 'authentic taste and communal spirit of the Caribbean and Africa' to the town with everything from goat meat to yams on offer at the store.

Describing themselves on their website, Mama Ibeji said: "Mama Ibeji’s story begins with a vision to bring the warmth and zest of Afro-Caribbean culture to your doorstep.

"Named after the Yoruba love of twins, Ibeji, symbolising joy and abundance, our founder, a spirited matriarch with a passion for her heritage, embarked on a journey to weave the rich tapestry of her ancestral flavours into the local community."
