The barriers facing new businesses trying to get their products onto the shelves of retailers are plentiful but they are often even more difficult to navigate for black-owned brands. In response to this, Sainsburys joined forces with Mission Ventures and Foundervine to launch an incubator programme aimed solely at black-led start ups. Join them as they discuss the vital importance of this initiative and how it has impacted owners currently on the scheme.
