Black British Foodies Fund

The food & beverage industry in the UK has experienced a significant period of growth in the last 5 years. However. it is clear that there is a need to support the growth and development of black owned food businesses in the UK. The need for this is more relevant than ever as we approach a post- COVID19 industry, a climate that will come with guaranteed uncertainty and the need to become fluid.


The Black British foodies fund will foster a community of black owned food & drink brands and provide expert knowledge, experience and growth services to enable them to thrive.


The monies raised in the fund will be used to form the group; designed for black foodie entrepreneurs and business owners needing grants to move their business forward and realise their dreams. Whether it be equipment, vital learning or simply a cash injection so they can focus on their goal full time. There will also a variety of essential services provided on an on-going business:
