Dear Kula Community,

We are thrilled and honoured to share some exciting news that has us bursting with pride. Kula has been recognized and awarded the prestigious Small Business of The Year Black Excellence Award by the Black Business Association of BC.

This recognition is a testament to the dedication, passion, and hard work of our founder, Asha Wheeldon, and the entire Kula team. It's also a celebration of our amazing community, who have supported us every step of the way on our journey to bring delicious Afro-Caribbean plant-based cuisine to your tables.

The Small Business of The Year Black Excellence Award highlights the impact Kula has made in the world of culinary innovation and cultural representation. We've always believed that food is a powerful tool for connecting people, bridging cultures, and fostering inclusivity. This award validates our commitment to creating nourishing, plant-based products that not only tantalize your taste buds but also celebrate diversity, representation, and community.



As we reflect on this achievement, we are reminded of our beginnings and the values that drive us forward. Kula sprouted from Asha's passion for her Kenyan roots and her desire to share the flavours and traditions of her upbringing with the world.

Today, Kula is proud to offer a range of plant-based products that capture the essence of Afro-Caribbean cuisine. From our carefully crafted sauces, free from added sugars and made with the finest pantry staples, to our mouthwatering meat alternatives in three irresistible flavors – every product reflects our commitment to quality, taste, and inclusivity.

This award is a reflection of our shared success and a testament to the growing recognition of the importance of culturally diverse plant-based options. We thank you, our amazing customers, partners, and supporters, for being part of the Kula family and helping us achieve this remarkable milestone.

The journey continues, and we are more inspired than ever to keep pushing culinary boundaries, promoting diversity, and creating spaces where everyone can feel represented and connected through food.

Stay tuned for more exciting developments from Kula, and once again, thank you for being part of our story.

With gratitude,
