Hello, my name is Awa Soum-Lanouette, a Senegalese professional with a background in catering and bilingual customer service. After graduating from the University of Saint-Boniface, I worked in a restaurant and an insurance company. Discovering a gap in the market, I noticed the absence of African juices, such as bissap, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. With 10 years' experience preparing bissap for family and friends, I decided to start a juice business. I have obtained advanced food safety certification, meeting all legal requirements. My aim is to introduce Winnipeggers to this delicious African drink, which is particularly popular in Senegal. Bissap is a unique, purely African drink, made with excellent ingredients and a taste like no other.
