Black Entrepreneur Signs Major Grocery Store Distribution Deal

23-year-old owner of Avonya’s Blends

Meet Emily Avonya Jefferson who had a severe reaction to a medication that almost took her life when she was 16. She was hospitalized for several days due to this reaction. Her road to recovery was long, in which she had to go through physical therapy to help her walk again as well as speech therapy.

Today, she is the 23-year-old owner of Avonya’s Blends, a Black-owned brand of unique seasonings that are all-natural, low-sodium, and contain no artificial preservatives or anti-caking agents.

She launched this company in April 2020 after a year of research and development. A few years ago, Emily started having allergic reactions to a number of different seasoning blends, but she didn’t know what she was allergic to because they didn’t list all of their ingredients on their labels.

They only listed two or three ingredients followed by the word “spices.” Because she is a major foodie and loves to cook, this created a challenge for her as this limited the number of things she could use to season her food. From this problem, a lightbulb went off and the company was born. Read more.
