Together, Ariela Badenas (Tempea Natural Foods), Mithalee Rawat (Shorba Bone Broth), Anika Makim Talwalkar (The Indian Pantry, and Avneet Takhar) launched the BIPOC Foods Vancouver start-up in July 2020.
The initiative was created to raise awareness of BIPOC food businesses and to highlight their integral existence in Vancouver as cultural and flavourful food outlets.
“Our aim was to put a spotlight on them, so more people could learn about their origins, and try their delicious food, knowing that their money would be supporting a
BIPOC business,” said Avneet Takhar.
“We achieved success and the knowledge that people wanted this venture to continue, hence making a recurrence for the festive season, and future pop-ups.”
A portion of the holiday pop-up’s sales will go to Indigenous organization Gidimt’en Yintah Access, so be sure to mark your calendar and shop this event.
