MSVU SPICE program joins core offerings after successful pilot


Mount Saint Vincent University’s Centre for Women in Business has made its Specialized Program in Cooking Entrepreneurship (SPICE) a part of its core offerings after experiencing overwhelming interest in the pilot. SPICE is a free program for historically under-represented Nova Scotian women who are interested in creating fully compliant food businesses. MSVU will also be growing the SPICE program to include a “mini SPICE” workshop that covers the key learnings of the larger course. “The road to success for underrepresented women with food businesses is filled with pitfalls,” said SPICE program lead Natalie Frederick-Wilson. “We wanted to change that pattern by providing these women with information, training, access to mentorship, resource support and connection to food industry insiders, to allow them to become”┬»confident and informed decision makers.”
