Good food and drink isn’t hard to come by nowadays but finding good food and drink brands (and I’m talking "good" in the “Superman does good, you’re doing well” sense of the word here) can be difficult. Ethical issues can crop up with a lot of larger conglomerates and it’s safe to say that a lot of their track records when it comes to diversity can be shady, to say the least.
That’s why I wanted to write a feature that highlighted some of the wonderful LGBTQ+-owned food and drink brands that are out there. Not only were all these food and bev companies founded by at least one LGBTQ+ person but they continue to make a positive impact on the world and its inhabitants, be that through charitable donations or the creation of some wonderfully subversive and erotic cakes. No, really.
From fermented hot sauce to freshly brewed beer, these are the brilliant (and delicious) products that you should be adding to your shopping list. The people who make them deserve your support all year round and you won’t regret giving your money to any of these companies, MOB. The cherry on top is that a lot of these LGBTQ+-owned food and drink brands work tirelessly to support worthy causes like The Good Law Project and Diversity Role Models as well. If there's any great brands you think I've missed out, feel free to send me a message!
