Project Description

 

Teff & Co. is a Black, woman owned, vegan and gluten free bakery offering delicious plant based and gluten free treats using ancient grains. In just over a year, we have become a go-to bakery in the community for people looking for healthy, allergen free baked goods. 

We've been operating for just over a year now with the support of family, friends, our loyal subscribers and the local community in the Washington DC area.


 

Baked With Love

We use the very best ingredients in our recipes that are organic, nutritious and flavorful. We love Teff, a naturally gluten free whole grain indigenous to Ethiopia and Eritrea - which is why we use it in many of our baked goods. Teff is packed with minerals and proteins and provides our baked goods rich and robust flavor and texture.

Teff & Co. is breaking the myth that vegan and gluten free goods do not taste good. With over 20 million people across the country facing gluten allergies and over 9 million people who have vegan diets, we know just how important it is to have good tasting options that everyone can enjoy.

 

 

We Love Our Community

We’ve had so much fun connecting with the community and bringing joy through our food to our customers in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia area. We've sold our goods at pop ups and markets as well as brick & mortar stores such as Mason & Greens and Creative Grounds DC.

 

 

We Hear You!

You have been showing us so much love with your reviews and subscriptions and we've seen an overwhelming demand for our baked goods over the past year, including special requests for events and regular access to our treats. We're working hard to try serve you!

 

 

Your Dough Will Help Us Grow!

Your support will go to hiring more resident bakers, move into a permanent commercial kitchen space, and expand our business into a full-time operation. All this so we can better serve our customers. I'm excited to offer some great rewards to you all from our beautiful eco-friendly cotton tote bags so exclusive access to some of my recipes.

 

We’re also currently seeking investors and brand partners who align with our values and who are just excited about Teff & Co. as we are. If you are interested, contact us hello@teffandco.com. We are eager to bring joy and love through our foods to millions of people.

What is Teff?

Teff is a gluten free whole grain indigenous to Ethiopia and Eritrea. It is one of the most important staple crops in these two countries, where it is used to make injera (a traditional flatbread found in Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisines. Teff is a great source of food energy, is a rich source of protein, dietary fiber, and manganese, and contains other vitamins and minerals such as zinc, phosphorous, iron and magnesium.

Why are we raising funds? 

We are raising funds to hire resident bakers, move into a commercial kitchen and expand to a full-time operation. This crowdfunding campaign is essential in helping us transition into the next phase of our business and to help us become sustainable in a challenging economic environment. 

Is this all the funding you need?

No, this is just the beginning. The funding from this crowdfunding campaign will allow us to begin to meet the demands of customers in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia area and it will help us build a proof of concept for future funding. Teff & Co. wants to become your go-to choice for plant based and gluten free baked goods across the country.
