FMI Emerge subscriber company Sustainable Snacks recently spoke at Concordia’s Day of Engagement, co-hosted by Envolve, a nonprofit that connects diverse communities to resources to realize their business goals. This event seeks to highlight public-private partnerships in action. The day featured inspiring stories from established businesses and budding entrepreneurs including immigrant and locally owned businesses.
In 2016, Rebecca Scott, Founder of Sustainable Snacks, won the Envolve Award USA, which supports entrepreneurs from underserved communities. Rebecca spoke about how small businesses and entrepreneurs can make their products more accessible to their communities while still turning a profit. While financial gain is important for any emerging brand, Rebecca stays true to her mission stating that her company believes “healthy food access is a right, not a privilege, and we are committed to continuing to expand our reach in food desert communities as the company grows.”
We are in awe of everything Rebecca has done for her brand’s success and her local community, truly encompassing the spirit of the FMI Emerge community. To read the full interview and learn more about the Sustainable Snack company and mission, click here.
