About

With a finger on the pulse of food industry trends, BLACK FOODIE is a versatile media platform
and creative agency exploring food and culture through digital content.

As the only verified food platform dedicated to Black food culture in North America, we reach over 2MM Millennial gourmands, home cooks, food bloggers, and entrepreneurs each year thanks to our knack for sharing authentic, engaging stories that connect with audiences that are largely underrepresented in the media.

Exploring Food & Culture Through A Black Lens

Created by Eden Hagos in 2015 as a website dedicated to highlighting Black restaurants and recipes, BLACK FOODIE has evolved to include media production, creative agency & consulting services, and a strong brand partnership portfolio that includes clients like Guinness, Tillamook, Interac, and SkipTheDishes.

We also work with key leaders to make an impact on racial imbalances within the Canadian foodservice industry through The Re-Seasoning coalition, a joint taskforce spearheaded by BLACK FOODIE, Highliner Foods, and Restaurants Canada.
