As a young brand in an industry that has long been steeped in racism, sexism, and economic inequality, it is our responsibility to acknowledge the injustices embedded in hospitality and drinking culture.
We want to hold ourselves accountable to ensure our anti-racism education reverberates beyond this current moment. Anti-racism work is never over. From our internal team, to our partners and freelance creatives we work with now and in the future, we are committed to amplifying BIPOC voices through diverse and inclusive hiring practices, creative campaigns, and editorial voices.
We talk a lot about plants–where we source them, how we use them, and why it’s important that our ingredients are 100% organic and non-GMO. As of 2012, Black farmers made up only 1.4% of the country’s 3.2 million farmers; the amount of Black farm-owners is an even more grim and yet still dwindling number. Below is a list of Black food purveyors and farmers from across the country that are committed to providing their community with fresh produce, as well as working to end food apartheid. If you don’t see your city listed, you can find a more exhaustive list here.
