Sue has always been health conscious, but had never really considered becoming vegan until Afro Vegan dishes became more readily available. She never knew that vegan food could be so delicious, not to mention how much better she felt in her body.
During the pandemic, Sue finally had the time and energy to focus more on her dream: owning her own business. In January of 2021 She registered for an online Entrepreneurship training program with Micro Credit Montreal and began experimenting with Caribbean vegan fillings to try inside Jamaican patties.
Once she was satisfied with 3 different kinds of patties, she went out to test the market. People were excited to know the patties were vegan and the feedback Sue received was very encouraging.
Sue's goal is to see Vege Tropicale patties in health food and grocery stores throughout Quebec.
