In honour of Black History Month and continuing to diversify our products and offerings we wanted to share some of our favourite Black-Owned Businesses.

Black-Owned Businesses @ Caribou Gifts

Ohh! Foods

Ohh! Foods is a local Canadian and black-owned business selling allergen friendly, better-for-you treats.  Brittany created Ohh! Foods after she developed a serious nut allergy at 18 years of age.  She has created a line of snack bites and edible cookie dough and frosting made with natural and simple ingredients.  You can find the Apple Pie Bites and Coconut Brownie Bites in some of our gift baskets, add them to a custom basket or purchase them individually.  These snack bites are free from soy, dairy, peanuts, nuts and gluten making them a tasty and notorious snack for most diets and school.

Other Amazing Black-Owned Businesses in Toronto

Black Owned TO

Black Owned TO has a retail marketplace at Scarborough Towncenter and now a location at Square One featuring products from dozen of Black-Owned businesses.  Going in this store is literally a time warp for me, there's so much to look at and so many amazing new products to look at and try.

Mary's Brigadeiro Chocolate

I happen to have a sweet tooth and chocolate from Mary's Brigadeiro is the best of the best.  We chatted with them about including these in our gift baskets but due to the very short shelf life we did not end up carrying these in our store but we highly recommend checking them out!
