Meet Our Team
The Black Bread Company is the first Black-owned sliced bread company. Led by south-side of Chicago natives; Mark Edmond (Founder, CEO) [right] and Jamel Lewis (Co-Founder, President) [left].
The vision for the company began after Mark was in the bread aisle at the grocery store looking to be more socially and economically conscious. Frustration set in after spending over 45 minutes ‘Googling’ information on every bread brand in the store and finding none to be Black-Owned.
We hope you join us in using our powers collectively to encourage creativity, express positive images of unity, and a shift in generational success.
