CWIF is a new social enterprise with a mission to celebrate and support the contribution of women in food.
Why start up Canadian Women In Food? You see, the food industry in Canada makes an enormous contribution to our economy and at least 60% of those employed by the industry are women. We believed this energy and expertise added by women should be recognized and celebrated in a meaningful way.
In order to do that we knew it was necessary to stir up women in the food industry, encourage them to be visible, nourish their spirits by creating connections with other women, and go beyond what other networking groups offer, and create business initiatives that are owned and driven by the members.
We believe Canadian Women in Food will be successful because it has the right blend of socializing, giving back to the community, and business action, so that it will serve to unlock the potential of social capital to deliver material results on behalf of the members.
