About Awa Bissap Corp.

Biography and Products

My name is Awa Soumbounou, I'm from Senegal (West Africa), I'm a wife and a mother. After graduating from St. Boniface University, I started working as a caterer in a restaurant for a while and also as a bilingual customer service representative for living benefits in an insurance company. After researching the beverage market, I realized that African juices like bissap were not sold in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I thought, why not start a bissap business, since I've been making it for over 10 years at gatherings of family and friends, and they love it. To do this, I completed the advanced food safety certification program and met all the legal requirements to start the business. My aim is to introduce the people of this country to this delicious juice, which is a purely African drink, especially in Senegal. A drink that contains excellent ingredients and has a unique taste, unlike any drink you've ever tasted.
