Syrian cuisine is one of the oldest and most revered culinary traditions in the world, with a vast range of rich and flavourful dishes. Our unique social enterprise is only made possible through the impressive talents of our incredible newcomer Syrian women chefs. We aim to empower these remarkable women while highlighting the delicious, healthy, and unique fare of their homeland.
From product development to cooking up a storm, there are many factors that work in sync to keep Tayybeh’s business operations running smoothly, efficiently and, of course, deliciously. If we had to reveal our one secret ingredient, however, it would probably be in the form of our incredible Operations Manager, Tahani Awad.
This week, we were excited to appear on The Wellness Hub podcast with host Drew Munro. Drew is the CEO of UpMeals, a local Vancouver company whose goal it is to provide better access to more fresh, sustainable foods in the workplace.
With the support of communities across Vancouver, the first women-run social enterprise employing Syrian newcomer women has beaten all the odds for business success in 2020. Despite the collapse of the catering industry, Tayybeh launched a line of packaged products, forged new partnerships, delivered fresh and frozen meals, and served over 5500 meals to the vulnerable in the Downtown Eastside and beyond.
