Canadian Women in Food: Using Buttons to Stir Things Up! January 18 2016
Canada’s food sector contributes in a big way to the national economy, being responsible for more than 9 per cent of GDP and 2.3 million jobs. That's approximately 13 per cent of all employment in Canada!
Women represent more than 60 per cent of those employed in the food and beverage industry.
Canadian Women in Food is a super cool community that supports and celebrates female entrepreneurs in this industry. And they are asking that we all do the same!
What is Canadian Women in Food?
Canadian Women in Food is a network of women from a wide variety of food-related sectors: from bakers to food photographers, sommeliers to restaurant managers!
The members of this national social enterprise have access to learning seminars and events, while providing opportunites for members to support each other.
CWIF supports women-owned food businesses, and cultivates opportunities for female food entrepreneurs. By 2020, they hope to be the leading connector of female entrepreneurs in Canada. We can all help them achieve their goals by spreading the word, and getting stirred up about women in food!
