So proud to be part of this celebration for #internationalwomenday2021 and to be part of the amazing women and favorite local brands featured across the country in Sobeys and Foodland! So very grateful!
I'll never forget the day our spice blends got the green light to be on the shelves of Sobeys. It brought tears to my eyes. Fast forward and now our authentic ready to use sauces and spice blends can be found in most Sobeys and Foodland stores throughout Atlantic Canada. Thank you Sobeys for being such a supporter of small businesses and making a small business female business owner's dream come true.

- The Players: Shivani Dhamija owns Shivani's Kitchen, a maker of fresh, salt-free Indian spice blends and sauces in Newport Station, near Windsor.
- The Problem: When COVID-19 killed the cruise ship season, Dhamija shut down Shivani's Kitchen restaurant at the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market in August.
- The Pivot: A month after closing the restaurant, Dhamija opened a food processing plant in Newport Station and now sells products through Sobeys and Food land in the Maritimes and United States. Within the next two years, she is planning to quadruple the size of her kitchen, operate 24-7 and take her products to the world.
