A little about us
Community & Women Empowerment
Through my entire childhood, I was raised by a single immigrant mother and witnessed her juggle multiple jobs to make ends meet. Through her tireless work, my mom was able to give my brother and I a better life. The experience has given me a profound respect for single moms and the struggles they go through. For many single moms, the economic pressures are debilitating for themselves and their children. Nearly a third of single mothers live in poverty with the poverty rate for single mothers nearly fives that for married-couple families. Almost one third of single mothers had difficulties in getting food for their children. They also have significantly harder times accessing child care, employment and education opportunities. ZoRaw pledges a portion of its sales to charities supporting single moms throughout Canada. These charities help provide single moms with better access to food, education, child care and employment. It’s our tiny contribution to make our future a better place for us all. Through ZoRaw, we have a commitment to donate to local food banks as a small way of helping our community stay food secure.
Mission & Sustainability
Our mission is to provide functional chocolate that serves as a catalyst in the world’s transition to healthy eating. We envision a future where sugar-filled convenience chocolates are filled with a better for you alternative in every pantry, lunch box and beyond. Both Tanveer and I came from multi-generational farming families and understand the importance of treating farmer’s right. We ensure all of our cocoa is fair trade certified and our ingredients are sustainably sourced.
