A team behind production of gourmet samosas and hot sauces has won the B.C. New Canadian Entrepreneur Award.
The 22nd annual award, organized by the Ethno Business Council of B.C., was given to Newton-based Nana’s Kitchen and Hot Sauce at an event in Vancouver on Thursday evening (May 22).
The plant is operated by sisters Shelina Mawani and Nasim Dhanji, who launched their food-manufacturing business in the late-1990s.
“It’s truly an honour that we’ve been recognized like this, after so many years of hard work, especially as new immigrants to Canada,” Mawani said. “We are Canadians but not born in Canada. It’s been a long journey.”
Nana’s Kitchen cooks up 25,000 samosas a day, making it one of the largest producers of samosas in the province.
Mawani, whose job is to market and promote the business, said the award is shared with the company’s 37 employees.
