Bangin’ Bannock offers a convenient dry mix of Bannock – just add water and cook! Bannock is a beloved cultural Indigenous fried bread. This delicious family recipe makes approximately 8 servings per bag, enough for a whole family. The Indigenous womxn owned business uses eco-friendly packaging to help promote the sustainability of mother earth.
First founded through the 3C Challenge – a Youth Indigenous Entrepreneur Program, the Indigenous womxn’s journey to offer a pre-made dry Bannock mix began in 2021! Much loved in the community, Destiny & Kelsey aspire to act as a shining light for other Indigenous business owners and be a part of a generation that begins to heal from intergenerational trauma through a deepened learning of Indigenous culture.
“We’ve hoped that by following our dreams, we can encourage others to do the same. We value community and giving back, so we will be donating to a different cause dear to us monthly.”
Question: How are you supporting other local businesses?
Answer: We hire local professionals to help us with graphic design, business consulting, and nutrition labeling. Our partnership allows jobs to be created as we all cash flow to stay within our local community. We also participate in local farmers’ markets and pow wows, where we introduce our product to local customers, as well as shop to support our local economy as consumers. Our local community support is about creating and supporting communities together.
Question: What social and environmental practices are you proud of?
Answer: Our social practices are the foundation of our business. We donate 10% of our profits each month to help support, promote, and bring awareness to issues that are important to us. We help uplift other businesses especially, Indigenous women-led businesses. We also have plans to create a start-up grant alongside mentorship for Indigenous youth/women businesses. In October, we donated 10% of profits to The Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund to build cultural understanding and create a path toward reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
Our businesses source eco-friendly packaging to help reduce waste in our environment. Minimizing our impact on Mother Earth is essential in the sustainability of our future generations.
