SWEET JULY SHINES A SPOTLIGHT ON OUR FEATURED BLACK-OWNED BRANDS—AND THE ONGOING IMPACT THEY’RE MAKING

Featured amongst 13 other Black women-owned brands, Sweet July highlighted Gwell’s impact and contribution to the country’s “fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs.” Give this insightful editorial a read to find out more from about these impactful women, including our Founder Fawziyya Sugai.

Gwell (which is Welsh for better), is a plant-based snack brand with all natural and organic ingredients, and no dairy, soy, gluten, artificial colors, artificial flavors, preservatives, or fillers. GWell’s founder, Fawziyya Sugai, is also on a mission to improve food equity by partnering with local organizations to expand access to wellness education and foster more equitable access to food. - Brianne Garrett

 

One thing that’s important to me as we speak about wellness is appreciating the history behind wellness practices. Black culture has a long history of storytelling. By sharing my story and the stories that inspired the wellness ingredients we use, we continue this tradition.
