As part of our celebration for International Women's Month, we’re excited to share a little love for some incredible women of color-owned specialty food retailers in our category.

From savory spices to mouthwatering sauces, these brands are dishing out flavor that we can all be proud to support. Here are some of our favorite retailers:


Founded by a pair of first-generation Afghan American sisters, this sauce brand offers cilantro chutney, mango chutney, hot chutney and lemon aioli, and their brand is newly carried at Target!



Kasama Rum

This small-batch rum brand celebrates the founder, Alexandra Dorda’s, filipina heritage. 




Owned by an Ethiopian woman and inspired by teff, a grain popular in Ethiopia for its protein and fiber content, these snack packs have flavor options for everyone. 



Deux Cranes 

Crafted by a Japanese-American woman, this chocolate brand infuses luxurious, unsuspecting flavors into each bar. 





Trade Street Jam Co

Founded by Chef Ashley Rouse, this black woman-owned business offers jams and sauces, baking mixes, and more! 





Todo Verde

This Latina-owned brand offers plant-based, true-to-culture taco seasonings crafted by Founder, Chef, and published cookbook Author Jocelyn Ramirez. 




Diaspora Co

Founded by Sana Javeri Kadri of Mumbai, this brand is creating mission-fueled snacks by working to create a more equitable spice trade, paying spice farmers above the market rate. 




This prebiotic + probiotic sparkling drink brand may sound familiar: founder Rosa Li, a Chinese-American woman, was featured on Shark Tank! 





Owned by Stefanie Garcia Turner, this brand started with powdered agua fresca mixes, then expanded into instant coffees that are absolutely worth a try. 




Grumpy Ginger

Founded by a Malaysian-American woman, their line of vegan red curry sauces are an incredible, high-quality addition to all types of cuisine. 




This March and all year round, take time to savor the diversity and deliciousness WOC-owned brands bring to the table. Thanks for supporting our journey at Todo Verde, too.
