Let’s KULA Together!
Meaning “to eat” in Kiswahili, we connect our communities through conscious sustainability and the love for great plant-based food!
Whether you’re on dinner duty with our plant-based proteins or adding a kick of flavour with our sauces, our products are 100% Vegan, Gluten-Free, and made with no added sugar.
Sprouted in Vancouver in 2018, KULA is the culmination of founder Asha Wheeldon’s diverse cultural experiences. Raised in Kenya, her journey led her through Toronto and to British Columbia. After moving to Vancouver, she was looking for food, flavours, and spaces that reminded her of home.
Inspired by her East-African family recipes, she aimed to share something unique that not only offered delicious nourishment, but created spaces and stories for inclusion, representation, and community connections through food.
And KULA Foods was born!
Led by our values of sustainability, community, and accessibility, we’re proud to bring communities together through the love of delicious, culturally relevant plant-based nourishment.
Our work takes place on the stolen ancestral and traditional territory of the Sḵwx̱ wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), Səlı́lwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkwə y̓ əm (Musqueam) people. We are committed to contributing to decolonizing our systems by showing up and building an organization that centres the liberation of all Indigenous, Black and People Of Colour.
