Meet the Inaugural Food Service Cohort

In partnership with the Black Creek Community Health Centre's Black Entrepreneurship Alliance, we have created a new initiative dedicated to supporting Food Service ventures that are Black owned. This new initiative will provide five businesses within the GTA an opportunity to gain access to mentorship, peer-to-peer sessions, and readily available online content. Get to know the inaugural cohort below.


The Abibiman Project

The Abibiman Project is rooted in the celebration of culinary and cultural diversity across Africa. We offer spice blends, sauces, coffee, tea and sweets all made with traditional African recipes, indigenous African ingredients and chef inspired techniques. We are all about welcoming and reconnecting folks to the African gastronomic table. A portion of our profit is donated to the African Food Basket to further support Black food sovereignty locally and strengthen the ties between food and culture in the local Black community.
