Rwandan Adventist Starts Plant-based Food Business
Jane Nshuti, the owner of Tamu by Jane, launched her plant-based meals business recently after taking a four-month intensive training program equipping her with business know-how. Nshuti says she always loved cooking, but it was something she did on the side. When the hard lockdown came last year, she did not have a permanent job and turned to cooking to earn an income. She now has a growing social media following, featuring her creative, healthy, and delicious food. Nshuti says she strives to influence a culture of healthy eating through plant-based foods. She strives to create awareness around African plant-based food. “When you tell people you are vegan and you are black, they go into this shock mode. Our ancestors didn’t necessarily live on meat, they actually lived on plants. Meat was just for special occasions and ceremonies,” she says.
